About

Homeless Youth Connection (HYC) provides programs and services to over 200 homeless teens in 34 high schools in the West Valley including Avondale, Buckeye, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Peoria, Tolleson and Tonopah.

We are looking for volunteers to work in partnership with HYC case managers and West Valley high schools to increase awareness about homeless teens and the programs and services HYC provides to students who need assistance. Volunteers attend high school registrations, teacher orientations, "Meet the Teacher" events, site council meetings and other student events. The goal is to have a team of Ambassadors for each school that will become a recognized and trusted group to provide resources to school administrators, develop a student volunteer base that will support basic needs and events and provides students in need of assistance with resources and direction.

HYC is a grassroots organization that is trying to make an impact in the West Valley and we need volunteers to make a difference. We are looking for individuals that want to take ownership and responsibility for important projects and are willing to take the steps to make things happen.
