Volunteer with Us
If our mission resonates with you, then we encourage you to join our team.
Description: With a small team of high school and university student volunteers, you will direct a 60-minute workshop, either in-person or online, on homelessness for an elementary-level classroom. You will run interactive activities to build empathy and engage in important dialogues with students about the origins of homelessness and why they matter.
If willing, you may also be tasked with picking up the cards at select locations. Training provided.
Time Commitment: Minimum ~3 hrs/month, though subject to vary. Every volunteer is required to oversee at least one workshop and one card pick-up per month, with each volunteer cycle being around six months.
We also require our members to be responsive to email communication and commit to being present and punctual for the workshops they choose to sign up for
*Please note that although we arrange workshops based on our volunteers' schedules, workshops often take place during regular school hours (9am-3pm) and may require you to miss one or two hours of class time each month.
