Volunteers allow Shalom Austin to fulfill its mission to the Jewish community and the greater Austin community. Bringing light to those dark areas of our world, volunteering at Shalom Austin will impact your life as much as those you serve.

Shalom Austin is the hub of Jewish volunteering in Central Texas. We strive to create accessible and meaningful volunteer experiences for all ages and interests that are rooted in tikkun olam (repairing the world), a central tenet of Judaism. By engaging the community in acts of tzedekah (justice) and gemilut chasadim (acts of loving-kindness) we as a community can work together toward tikkun olam.

Together with our community as well as partner organizations, we address food insecurity, social isolation, ecowellness, refugee resettlement efforts, and more.
