Worksites

Confluence partners with dynamic organizations in the community to provide our volunteers with meaningful work, excellent supervision, and ongoing training. We match our volunteers and placements through an elaborate system of information sharing and interviews that take place when the interns first arrive in Columbus. Partner organizations play a big role in sustaining Confluence as 90% of the Confluence operating budget is funded through worksite placement fees.

Following a time of retreat and initial training with the volunteer group, Confluence members begin their service with a Partner Organization (PO) around the first of September.

Each week our interns serve 35 hours in their placements (Monday through Friday).  The hours that the placements require vary, and some evening (and occasionally) weekend hours may be necessary.

The volunteers are challenged to fulfill the needs that their placements present while also honoring the commitments they make to the intentional community, the neighborhood, and St. Johns.
