Help Change Lives through Employment by Teaching a Job Readiness Class.

Save to Favorites


Chrysalis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment. We are thrilled to announce the opening of our Orange County center coming this Fall 2018!

Our philosophy is that a steady job is the single most important step in a person’s transition out of poverty and onto a pathway to long-term self-sufficiency. Offering a hand up, rather than a hand out, Chrysalis empowers our clients to complete a self-directed job search.

YOU can make a real difference in the lives of the men and women in Orange County who are willing, ready, and able to become self-sufficient through employment.

Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in empowering clients to build specific skills related to the job search process and instilling the self-esteem needed to succeed beyond the interview. We have multiple volunteer opportunities to teach a job readiness class to a group of eager and motivated individuals ready to learn and find work!

  • Class Facilitation requires a minimum weekly or bi-weekly commitment of 2 hours, either from 9:30 am-11:30 am or 1:15 pm - 3:15 pm
  • Training is provided

We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of our Orange County location in Anaheim! Volunteers are currently needed Monday through Thursday during the hours of 8 am-12 pm or 1 pm-4 pm or Fridays 8 am-12 pm. We have weekly and bi-weekly opportunities available. Please note, you must be 18 or over to volunteer.

Are you ready to help change the lives of our clients? If so, head on over to our website and submit an application to volunteer: https://changelives.org/volunteer/

We look forward to collaborating together and make a positive change in our communities!

Mission Statement

To create a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to prepare for, find, and retain employment.


Chrysalis volunteers play an integral role in our clients' success and provide direct services. They facilitate job readiness classes, provide support for filling out online job applications, organize our resource rooms, prepare resumes and help clients practice their interview skills. For ongoing volunteer opportunities, Chrysalis volunteers will be required to submit a brief online application, attend an informational session (held monthly at each site), receive training and ongoing evaluation, agree to confidentiality terms, and commit to 2 consecutive hours on a weekly or biweekly basis. Volunteer hours are between 8am-12pm or 1pm-4pm Monday through Thursday and 8am-12pm on Fridays.
