There are many opportunities for you to lend your time and talents to improve the lives of abused, neglected and homeless teens in your community.
Volunteers play a critical role in our agency, whether it is working with the boys, helping in the office, Thrift Store, special events, or serving on a committee. There is a place for everyone.
Special Skill Volunteer
Any volunteer who has a special skill (e.g., cooking, arts & crafts, karate, creative writing) would have a set day and time to come and meet with several residents to teach them the skill.
Some residents have missed a lot of school because of their family situations and are behind in their classes or need help with particular subjects. This position requires a minimum of one hour per week with a predetermined date and time.
One Time Volunteer
Volunteers interested in taking on a one-day project are encouraged to bake cookies with the residents, plant flowers, help wrap holiday gifts, or organize a similar activity with the volunteer coordinator.
Special Event Committee Volunteer
Volunteers can work with staff and board members on a special fundraising event. Activities would include such things as selling tickets, soliciting ads and sponsorships, administrative work, helping with set up and event day efforts, and other activities associated with the event.
Assistance with administrative tasks, such as filing, answering the phone, writing thank-you letters, and logging information in the database, is always needed.
