Our indispensable volunteers

Learn how you or your group can ignite the spark for youth by volunteering at The Place.

Two ways you can volunteer


We will work with you and your group to do major projects that include painting, landscaping, deep cleaning in our dorms, construction, and more.  Group volunteer opportunities do not require background checks and are great for group service projects.

To find out about opportunities for your group to volunteer, please contact Sarah, our Volunteer Manager.


You want to make a difference by becoming a volunteer.  You may have a desire to interact with the young people we serve, from cooking to receptionist to art or exercise.  

How do you know if volunteering at The Place is the right fit?

  • “I am looking for a long-term volunteer commitment.”
  • “I can pass a background check.”
  • “I am dependable and consistent.”

If you can respond “YES” to these three statements, Sarah would like to talk with you.  Please email her, below, to set up a phone interview.
