Become a Volunteer

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

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:

 

WEEKLY PROGRAM VOLUNTEER

We seek weekly program volunteers for our Youth Center and Satellites in Central Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Queen Creek, Flagstaff and Prescott. We ask our weekly program volunteers to commit to volunteering for at least 6 months.

 

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, assist in our administration office, cook and clean as necessary.

 

TEACH A SPECIAL CLASS

Are you a Tai Chi instructor? An artist? An 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, Queer Blended Learning Center (QBLC) and other special groups.

 

SPECIAL EVENT VOLUNTEER:

Work behind the scene with staff and youth to support, plan, and coordinate special one•n•ten events such as Queermas, Queer Prom, Fall Feast, AIDS Walk, and more!

  • Pass a background check (one•n•ten covers this cost) or hold a fingerprint clearance card.
