Be a volunteer and make a difference
YES depends on nearly 20,000 volunteer hours a year to help us build self-reliant youth, strong families and a safe, caring Eastside community. Our volunteers receive training and support, along with the deep satisfaction of knowing you're making a real difference in the lives of young people. Here are just a few ways you can help:
Table Captain – Invest in Youth Breakfast
- Help us raise funds for the largest fundraiser of the year by inviting your friends and colleagues as a guest at your table. There is no cost to you.
Mentoring opportunities with excellent support/guidance/training
- Success Mentoring Program: Adult mentors commit 2 hours per week for at least a year. Get to know your 9-17-year-old mentee doing things you both enjoy.
- Help two or more hours per week with administrative tasks like filing, copying, data entry and other office projects, depending on your interests and skill level.
- Practice what you are learning in college about marketing or public relations. Work 5 hours per week for three to six months.
- Support a drive to collect back-to-school supplies, summer camp necessities, activity tickets or other items at your work, church, school or other group. Then join us for a fun filling-day or help with distribution—a great office team or book group project. Items are used for low income kids participating in Summer Explorers Therapeutic Day Camp, UPROADS Teen Recovery Group and more.
- Help plan one of the many gatherings like our mentor appreciation dinner, pumpkin carving or holiday celelbration. Provide food, decorate and/or help the staff make a truly memorable event.
