FAQs

Open AllClose All
  Do I need to register to view opportunities?

Registration in Volunteer Impact is not required to view current opportunities.  Individuals signing up to volunteer will be required to complete a one-time Volunteer Registration process. 

Once approved, you may return to the site anytime to sign up for volunteer opportunities, complete other required credentials, manage volunteer time, etc.

  If I fill out the online application, does that mean I’ve been accepted into the program?

We review every application and notify those who are a good fit and match our current needs.

Once accepted, all volunteers attend a volunteer orientation and volunteers 18 years and older are required to attend a Safe Environment course (Safeguarding All of God's Family).

  How do I register for a Safe Environment course?

If you have already completed the course at your local parish or school, please let the Volunteer Coordinator know the approximate date and location. If you have not, please go to: https://milwaukee.cmgconnect.org/  to register.  Once registered, click the “Initial Live Training” to get started.

  How old do I need to be to volunteer?

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old to volunteer independently. Volunteers who are 16-17 years may come unaccompanied with a signed parent permission form.

  Do I have to be Catholic to volunteer?

Just like the people we serve, we accept volunteers from all different faiths and cultural backgrounds.

  I have been ordered by the courts to perform community service; can I do that at Catholic Charities?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of our work, Catholic Charities cannot accept court-mandated community service volunteers.

  Can I bring my children, family or friends to volunteer with me?

Catholic Charities has several policies and procedures in place to ensure services provided to clients are done so ethically and professionally, and that client information is maintained confidential.   To that end, it is inappropriate for a volunteer to bring their child (ren), friends or family to their volunteer commitment.

All volunteers must fill out a volunteer application and backgrounds check disclosure and are pre-approved by Catholic Charities’ Volunteer Coordinator.

  Do you have Group Opportunities?

Yes! If you are part of a school, church, organization or any group that wants to help those in need, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Brandt or 414-769-3414.

  Do you offer Internships?

Catholic Charities offers a variety of non-paid internship opportunities for college students. Internship opportunities are available year around. To be considered for an internship, please send your resume and cover letter to jbrandt@ccmke.org
