Volunteering at TEP

It’s impossible to imagine The Embracing Project without our team of passionate volunteers. As a grassroots nonprofit organization, we depend on them to help us fulfill our mission.

Our volunteers lend their time and talents in a variety of ways including: serving as mentors, completing administrative tasks, and assisting at community outreach events.
