SOOP Phoenix

-- Glendale, Arizona

Flexible term
Ages 25+



Warm weather is not the only reason SOOP volunteers are attracted to Arizona. The Phoenix unit provides many opportunities for community outreach. Volunteers work in food banks, at a refugee settlement center, as ELL (English Language Learners) teachers and aides, and help with various repair and remodeling projects. Our volunteers enjoy an atmosphere of living and working together, sharing evening meals with other SOOP volunteers, and visiting local sights. Coordinators assist with transportation to and from the airport, when needed, and plan work site locations in line with the interests and abilities of volunteers. It is critical that you stay in contact with the Phoenix coordinators about your plans and about any changes you may need to make. Lodging: Housing is provided in a communal setting at the Phoenix Menno Guest House, a 6-bedroom, 3-bathroom home near Trinity Mennonite Church. The charge for food and lodging is $35/day for singles, and $50/day for couples. Food is available for breakfast and lunch but up to the individual for preparation. The evening meal is shared by all with volunteers taking their turn at preparation.

*July 22, 2020: In a note from the Phoenix Menno Guest House Board of Directors regarding the spread of COVID-19, they have shared that they are officially cancelling SOOP for the remainder of calendar year 2020.  The Board will decide on the fate of the January-April, 2021 SOOP season by early fall and will advise us just as soon as a decision is made.
