Roll up your sleeves!
Join us as we work to address issues of social justice that challenge our city.
At Common Good we offer a diverse range of volunteer opportunities within our Employment, Education and Early Life initiatives. With your help, we can deepen our impact even further as we serve the needs of our local neighbourhoods & communities.
Volunteering also provides an opportunity for each individual to experience personal transformation as we are exposed to and engage with the legacies of poverty and injustice in our city. The bible tells us clearly what the Lord requires of us – to act justly and love mercy. Volunteering provides a way for us to turn love into action.
Common Good also oversees the volunteer opportunities linked to Common Ground Churches’ Social Justice Ministries as well as other programmes run by Common Grounders and partner organisations.
Volunteering is not only a means to engage meaningfully with communities across Cape Town, but also an opportunity to affect change in our own hearts as we reach across divides and work together towards a common goal.
