Interested in volunteering with YES? Volunteers are an essential component of our organization. Without them, much of the work we do would not be possible. Volunteers not only assist the work of YES staff but have the satisfaction of knowing that they made a difference in a young person’s life. Whether young or old, an individual or a group, all are welcome to volunteer as part of the YES Family.
Volunteers help in a number of ways, from providing resume and job assistance, facilitating group activities, organizing and sorting donations, helping us clean our space, and so much more. Check out the different position descriptions below to see which would work best for you! Please note that an in person interview is required before acceptance to all positions.
Resume/Job Search Assistant
One of the biggest struggles for the youth we serve is finding a job. Some have never worked and have never made a resume, while others are just struggling to find a new career path. As a volunteer, you will work one on one with youth during drop-in to assist them with making a resume, filling out job applications, or just doing general job searches.
Please fill out the Resume/Job Search Assistant Application online and we will get in touch with you!
During drop-in, we offer various different groups for youth. Previous groups include yoga, knitting, art, advocacy group and LGBTQ group, among others. Help provide an outlet for our youth to de-stress from their daily struggles, have some fun or learn about a new and interesting topic.
