Students from Polk State College, Florida Southern College, and Southeastern University make up over 30 percent of the volunteers at Talbot House Ministries. As these students prepare to return to Lakeland for the fall semester, we look forward to welcoming them back to our campus.

Volunteering is a great way to develop skills, make connections, and become well-rounded individuals. Now more than ever, students are wanting to make a positive impact in their community and are considering the legacy they will leave behind. Volunteering is a safe and effective way to make a difference and be part of something bigger than themselves.

Development Associate, Ivanisse Betancourt, says, “I love when we have students on campus! Their laughter, energy, and positivity leave residents feeling refreshed. Young people are the future. If we want to see homelessness end, it starts with students believing in what we do, seeing the power of their presence, and being encouraged to make a difference.”

We are so grateful for all of the students who choose to add serving at Talbot House to their schedule. We recognize how busy students can be and are grateful for their love of our community and believing in our mission.
