Volunteer With Us

“Community service is calling, no need for stalling,” The Harvest Network of Schools (HNS) is currently seeking volunteers to work with scholars to improve academic growth and achievement.  We will have ongoing opportunities offered throughout the day, that will fit with any schedule.

Why volunteer:

  • You make a difference
  • Volunteerism is an investment in our school and community
  • Increases more individualized time for the scholars
  • It promotes personal growth

Training will be provided, on-site support from volunteer manager and end of program celebration.

Each candidate must complete an application, a criminal background check, and have an interview and orientation before they can begin volunteering. HNS is interested in volunteers that are able to commit to one to two days a week, for a minimum of six weeks. 

If you would like to volunteer at HNS please contact Marquita Butler at 612-876-4033 or mbutler@seed-harvest.org

Past Volunteer Highlights

Medtronic's Black Employee Network - The African Descent Network (ADN) contributed 350 backpacks filled with school supplies to our scholars! They partnered with Target who contributed a $5 Target gift card to complete each backpack! In addition to the backpacks Medtronic employees raised $4,000 and Medtronic matched it making it a total donation of $8,000.00.
