Why Volunteer?

Volunteers help to cultivate Blythe-Oldfield.

What does that mean? There is already so much beauty and potential here. It’s our job to tend it so that the neighborhood will flourish. Join us in the Blythe Oldfield story of cultivating what has been broken, lost or forgotten so that it has the chance to thrive.

Current Opportunities

House Projects – We have several properties that need demolition work or cleaned out. 

 

Painting Projects – The community garden fence needs to be painted!

 

Volunteer Overseer – A consistent volunteer who understands and supports the mission of City Fields and the volunteer program. This person would lead volunteer groups or individuals in various projects related to the neighborhood’s current needs. Preferred availability would include weekends and evenings. 

Volunteer Teacher – We need at least four teachers to serve regularly throughout the year with Career Connection, our career-readiness training program. This instruction will prepare students for their new career, by providing them with the tools and resources they need to seek out and obtain viable employment. This program helps unemployed or underemployed individuals obtain a career that provides a living wage and financial stability.

 

Home Buyer Mentor – A consistent volunteer who is interested in working one-on-one with a person going through the homeownership process. Preferably someone who has purchased a home before and can serve as a guide and advocate to a first-time homebuyer.
