Volunteer Opportunites

Volunteers play a critical role at Hogar.  With more than 300 volunteers across the various departments and sites, volunteers outnumber Hogar employees 20 to 1.  We simply could not serve thousands of immigrants and their families each year were it not for the generosity and dedication of our volunteers.

They teach English, complete client intakes, prepare applicants for the US citizenship interview and exam, and provide a compassionate ear for our clients and students.

Wikispaces

Hogar uses wikis to facilitate volunteer and staff communication.  What is a wiki?  A wiki is essentially a website that allows multiple users to edit the content.  There are three wikis where volunteers can access information about our weather policy, volunteer policy, and news and announcements: http://hogarhispano.wikispaces.com/, https://catholiccharitiesesl.wikispaces.com/, and https://ctr.wikispaces.com/.  Most importantly, teachers and staff can communicate with each other inter-site and intra-site.
