“Companis is my gateway to having an opportunity to serve and care for the community, which is a trait instilled in me by my grandparents.”
— Sumeet Pamma, Companis Worker

You came to the right place.
Companis volunteers are young professionals, retirees, and people transitioning between careers. They are teachers, journalists, bookkeepers, social workers, physicians, IT specialists, and human resources experts. They come from all walks of life, and they all have something in common: they’re seeking purpose, connection, and opportunities to learn new things while giving back.
At Companis, our volunteers bring expertise and talent to the nonprofits that are holding our safety net together. They serve food banks, domestic violence shelters, immigration support agencies, and community health care clinics. They write grants, create databases, and manage financial systems.
We custom-tailor every placement by taking the time to get to know our volunteers and our nonprofit partners personally, because our work is rooted in genuine relationships, not making widgets. Plus, we create space for connection and reflection with other volunteers through our monthly worker support meetings — so you’ll never be on your own.
