YOUTH POLICY UPDATE:
Volunteers from 7th – 9th grade are now able to volunteer when clients are present with a parent, guardian or group chaperone. Volunteers from 10th – 12th grade may volunteer when clients are present without parental supervision, but must work side by side with an adult volunteer. All volunteers younger than 7th grade may volunteer when clients are not present. Youth opportunities may vary at PADS Sites based on limitations and shift availability. Please call Allyson for site specific youth opportunities.
"Volunteering is at the very core of being human. No one has made it through life without someone else's help." - Heather French Henry
Our commitment to serving the homeless is comprehensive and determined to helping them create a better life for themselves and their families. JOURNEYS' employees are assisted by a pool of over 2,500 volunteers who put in over 75,000 hours a year at the HOPE Center and PADS sites.
All volunteers are required to participate in an orientation training. Training is essential for volunteers to learn how the agency is structured. how to interact with the clients, and on general volunteer opportunities. Once you have completed an orientation you will be invited to sign up for specific volunteer opportunities as they become available.
