Mustard Seed Project is looking for volunteers and team members that exhibit the following qualities: passion for social change, social competence, commitment, empathy, and open-mindedness. As a Mustard Seed Project member, you will gain the skills to make a direct impact in your community. 

We deeply appreciate your interests to join our Mustard Seed Project Family. Hundreds of volunteers have worked diligently and compassionately to make this project everything it is today, and we welcome you to join us to make a difference in the world and in our day to day lives. 

Volunteers are required to:

1. Attend information sessions and apply during their university's chapter recruitment season (usually the beginning of spring terms). Prospective volunteers who apply may be given an interview, and once accepted, must undergo formal homeless outreach training. 

2. Pay annual membership dues. All dues can be waived under the conditions set by the chapter treasurer. All funds go directly into homeless outreach and volunteer case management. 

3. Commit to a set amount of service hours per term, as set by the chapter. 

4. Attend 2 volunteer meetings per term. 

To learn more about recruitment, please contact your respective chapter. 

If you're interested in starting a chapter at your university, or if you want to join our team and you have special skills such as fundraising, public speaking, data analysis, or graphic design, please send an email with your resume to
