Volunteer Opportunities



Thank you for your interest in volunteering with BorderLinks!  We appreciate the time and talent that our many volunteers have donated to help BorderLinks further its mission.

Each year, we receive one or two volunteers from the Presbyterian Church (USA) Young Adult Volunteer Program.  BorderLinks also has full-time volunteers from the Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS) Program.  If you are interested in volunteering with one of these programs, please refer to their websites listed below and contact Borderlinks' Education Director at  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Short Term 

There are a variety of projects here at BorderLinks that are specifically designed for short-term volunteers.  Some of these projects include: cooking for delegation groups of 10-20 people, gardening tasks, education research projects, mailings, and translating/interpreting.  Please first read over this list and determine whether your interests and talents meet our organization’s needs. Next, we ask that you fill out and submit an application form found at the bottom of this page.

If you have a specific skill that you believe would benefit the BorderLinks Tucson office, write a short proposal and attach it with your application.  Based on the current needs of the organization, there may be a possibility to design a special internship or volunteer project!  If you are a high school, university, or gradute student, we may be able to design a credit-bearing internship for you, depending on the requirements of your institution.

You may download the application in word format here.  For more information regarding volunteer/intern opportunities at BorderLinks, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
