Cafe Clarkston – Get Involved

Do you know a little about computers? Do you like making friendships with people from all over the world? Are you patient and gracious? Then this is for you!

Volunteers are a vital part of the café.  You help patrons use the computer to look for jobs (making resumes, filling out applications, searching for job leads, etc.) and practice basic computer skills.

  • Volunteering requires only basic computer skills.
  • You can teach basic computer skills, help run and operate the café, develop resumes, and search for jobs.
  • Volunteer training readily available around your schedule.

As more people volunteer, we’ll be able to expand our services as well as our hours of operation.

How To Volunteer

1. Come join us for one day, see if you like what you see.  If it’s not for you, no worries.  If you have as much fun as we do, then we’ll schedule you to attend one of our volunteer orientations, offered monthly.

2. You can keep volunteering even before you’ve taken the orientation.

3. Send us the attached Volunteer Application as soon as you can.

4. Commit to a regular schedule.  Since there’s a lot to learn, we ask for a minimum commitment of 2 hours per week for at least 3 months.

We’re located at 3895 Church St, Clarkston, GA 30021.  Hosted inside the Clarkston International Bible Church building.  Parking is in the rear of the building.
