Sign up for a Volunteer Orientation


Thank you for your interest in serving at the Union Gospel Mission! Attending a volunteer orientation is your first step on a wonderfully fulfilling path.

(If you’d like to serve a meal, you don’t need to attend an orientation. Click here for more information.)

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Find the orientation time and location you want to attend on the calendar below. (Note: You may attend any Spokane orientation—Men’s Shelter, Anna Ogden Hall or the Crisis Shelter—to volunteer in any Spokane UGM location. If you want to volunteer at the Coeur d’Alene Center for Women and Children, please sign up for an orientation by calling 208.665.4673.)
  2. Spokane only: Fill out the form to the right to let us know which orientation you’re attending. You’ll receive a confirmation email to remind you of what you signed up for. We’ll also contact you with any changes in scheduling for the orientation you chose.
  3. Come to orientation! At orientation, we’ll get you acquainted with UGM ministries, discuss the many ways volunteers serve, and give you an application to fill out. Submitting your application will initiate an interview process to match your skills and interests with the needs at UGM.

If you have any questions, please call Greg Barclay at 509.532.3813.
