Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas.


Goodwill is very grateful to those who give their time, talents, and passion. Our volunteers are a critical part of the team, and we could not provide employment services to thousands each year without the dedication and service of our volunteers.

Goodwill is excited to offer a diverse range of volunteer opportunities. We work with individuals and groups; one-time events and recurring volunteers; and remote and in-person opportunities at multiple locations all around western Missouri and eastern Kansas.

We have several ways volunteers can support the power of work. Please review current volunteer positions, below.

Please note:

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas prioritizes the health and safety of staff, volunteers, job seekers, donors, and shoppers. During COVID-19, we have new protocols and policies that in-person volunteers must follow.

In-person volunteers must wear a face mask during their service. Social distancing practices have been implemented. Volunteers should not serve if they are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or if they have possibly come into contact with someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days. More information on our COVID-19 protocols may be found by emailing gvolunteer@mokangoodwill.org.

Goodwill is constantly evaluating the situation and recommendations from health and government leaders, and we will resume typical volunteer activity as soon as it is determined safe to do so. Though there are no in-person opportunities now, you are more than welcome to complete our Volunteer Profile at any time. This is the first step to volunteering when we resume service opportunities.
