Donating your time as a volunteer is the greatest gift you can give to our youth. Here are details about getting involved with one•n•ten.

Requirements

All volunteers that work with youth must:

  • Pass a background check (one•n•ten covers this cost)
  • Must be at least 25-years-old
  • Youth Center volunteers must complete training and commit to three hours a week

Examples of opportunities

You can give back by volunteering one-on-one or serving on committees to help plan an event or help raise money for our programs. Opportunities include:

  • Youth Center volunteer: works directly with youth at our downtown Phoenix location.
  • Youth mentor: serves as an inspiration to our youth by helping them through issues, land a job and more.
  • Committee members: you can serve on our fundraising, marketing, Fresh Brunch or Dancing With the Bars committees.

Volunteer with P.O.N.D. housing program

Our housing program needs a variety of volunteers to host workshops for youth on a variety of independent-living topics that include:

  • Finance: banking, budgeting, saving and account-balancing
  • Employment: resume-writing, job searching and interviewing
  • Kitchen Skills: baking, cooking, meal-planning and grocery-budgeting
  • Life Skills: goal-setting and home-making
  • Creative: arts & crafts, DIY and simple home improvement

Workshops are scheduled weekly at the P.O.N.D. residence and can be no longer than a 2-hour time frame, but can span more than one session.
