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:
WEEKLY PROGRAM VOLUNTEER
We seek weekly program volunteers for our Youth Center and Satellites in Central Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, Tempe, Scottsdale, and Queen Creek. We ask our weekly program volunteers to commit to volunteering for at least 6 months, with the ability to attend group once a bi-weekly for 2-4 hours.
YOUTH CENTER BEHIND THE SCENES CREW
Our beloved Youth Center is actively used. That’s why every week we need a couple of volunteers to come in and sort through our donations, make note of essentials that we need, communicate needs to staff, cook and clean as necessary.
TEACH A SPECIAL CLASS
Are you a yoga instructor? An artist? And Organizer? Culinary expert? We are always looking for special guests to come into our programs to conduct short classes and program presentations at our Youth Center, Satellites, POND Housing program, and other special groups.
