Any YouthCare Volunteer Opportunity Generally interested in helping with any volunteer needs at YouthCare? Choose this opportunity and we'll notify you as various ongoing or one-time volunteer opportunities come up! Thank you!
Clothing & Hygiene Bank Steward Youth deserve a nice place to "shop" for what they need! Help us sort and organize donated items into the "Basement Boutique" and "Hygiene Center" so that young people can get what the need and feel good about it!
Dinner at our House Often the needs of youth might pop up in various ways and at unpredictable times. You can free up valuable staff time so they can address immediate needs of young people in the evenings. Volunteer once a week to prepare or drop off dinner for the 8-14 youth who live in a YouthCare program.
Drop-In Volunteer The YouthCare Drop-in Centers, located downtown or in the U-District, offers meals M-F, showers, laundry, and clothing, hygiene supplies, knowledgeable staff, positive activities, and a safe, non-judgmental environment . Support staff, lead an activity, or help with anything around the building in order to maintain a safe and welcoming environment where youth can have their basic needs met, are treated with respect, are met with compassion and non-judgment, and can be referred to a variety of services.
Evening Shelter Volunteer At YouthCare's emergency shelter, seven nights a week, volunteers work with staff to maintain and run the shelter, and interact with youth who utilize it. This position frees shelter staff to address more complex situations with care and build deeper relationships with youth. Some shifts will be basic-needs focused and some will be activity focused, depending on the needs presented on a given day.
Life Skills or Activity Leader Activity Leaders will lead fun and engaging activities or workshops with youth in a variety of settings. An activity can teach a "life skill" (i.e. cooking, cleaning, hygiene, financial literacty) or can teach positive hobbies (i.e. crafting, poetry, learning a language, dance, etc.) Other examples of activities include haircuts, technology workshops, health workshops, and you can get creative about what you would like to lead.
Main Office Volunteer By working behind-the-scences, you not only get to see the inner workings of a local nonprofit, but you create even more capacity for YouthCare's staff. In this position, you will be helping the YouthCare administration with event planning, volunteer management, data entry, various creative projects, and research. This is a great way to build your resume and network in the nonprofit sector.
Meal Volunteer Bring a Group of 2-8 friends, coworkers, or family to prepare and serve meals at either the James W. Ray Orion Center (downtown) or the University Distrcit Youth Center (U-District). This help provides young people with a warm, nutritious meal and allows our case managers and youth counselors to talk with young people. Learn more at www.youthcare.org/serveameal
Safe Place Response Team Volunteer Young people in crisis often don’t know where to turn. Safe Place is a program that quickly connects youth in crisis to help, through a network of local businesses designated as “Safe Places.” A volunteer in this program will assist the Safe Place Coordinator when responding to calls from youth who have run away and are seeking a safe place to sleep. The volunteer is expected to provide a supportive presence, anywhere in King County, alongside staff while promoting safety within the Safe Place program through a two-person response to calls.
Tutor Let us know what subjects you would be comfortable tutoring! Young people are in high school, college, studying for their GED, completing pre-requisite tests, and sometimes struggling with learning barriers. Help an individual or a small group move forward with their studies!
