Weekend Cooks and Servers Needed at Youth Shelter
Youth Engagement Advocacy Housing (YEAH!)
Come volunteer with YEAH! (Youth Engagement Advocacy Housing), Berkeley's only shelter for transitional age youth (18-25). We assist young people who are currently homeless by providing basic relief from the stress of living on the street.
We need volunteers who are interested in cooking and/or serving dinners on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for about 20 youth who are residing at the shelter. The cooking position is from 6:00-8:00 PM and the serving position is from 7:45 PM-10:15 PM. Our shelter season is from November until Mid-May, and we are looking for volunteers who can commit to a consistent shift throughout the rest of this 6 month period. We ask that cooks commit to at least one shift per month, and servers to two shifts per month, but if you are unable we are willing to work with your schedule.
We also require every volunteer to go through a training before they begin working at YEAH! The training is only about 1.5 hr. Please respond to this post to find out when the next scheduled training is.
