Convoy of Hope’s initiatives around the world are only possible because of the passionate work of the tens of thousand of volunteers who give of their time to help others.

Hands of Hope

Hands of Hope is a volunteer opportunity at our Springfield, Mo., World Distribution Center each Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Volunteers will help with sorting, packing, counting, labeling items and various other projects that will be distributed through our program initiatives.

Age requirements are as follows: 10-12 year olds must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and have a signed release form by a parent or legal guardian. Youth 13-17 years old will be required to have a signed release form by a parent or legal guardian. Youth under 10 years old will not be eligible to volunteer or attend with a parent or legal guardian.

No pre-registration is required for individuals, however groups of 10 or more are required to register in advance by filling out this form. Upon completing the form, we will contact you with further information.

In case of inclement weather, if Springfield Public Schools is canceled, Hands of Hope will be canceled.

Disaster Response

Following major domestic disasters, Convoy of Hope coordinates volunteer teams with partners on the ground doing damage assessment, delivery of supplies, debris removal in impacted communities, and much more.

Following international disasters, Convoy of Hope works with our in-country teams to assess the need for volunteers.


Our international teams share compassion with people around the world. These teams of volunteers from churches or other groups, work for 8-10 days helping those in need. To learn more about these group opportunities and for the approximate costs involved, please visit the Compassion Teams page.
