Here at James Island Outreach, we have a small staff team, so a large portion of what we do here is done by volunteers. They don’t just make a difference, our volunteers are the difference. We couldn’t do this without them.

We ask that all new volunteers plan to attend an orientation class. This is a great opportunity to learn more about JIO and meet other volunteers. We also go over everything you’ll need to know to get started as a new volunteer. Reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator at for more information.
