Here's How
to Volunteer
In September, Philadelphia will welcome Pope Francis and visitors from around the globe for the first World Meeting of Families held in the United States. Registration is now open to serve as a volunteer in one of two categories: “General Volunteers” and “Deacons, Men & Women Religious.”

There is a two-step registration process that includes an online form and a background check. After these steps, registrants will be notified regarding eligibility. When the background check is passed, individuals are connected with the Volunteer Hub where days and time slots are requested.
