About

Are you interested in working directly with youth? Do you enjoy spending time outdoors? Becoming an Outreach Volunteer with HomePlate Youth Services might be for you!

HomePlate is Washington County’s only drop-in center and outreach team that is designed to support youth experiencing housing instability. Our outreach team travels Washington County meeting youth where they are, and providing basic resources like water bottles, hygiene supplies, and referrals to other community partners. They visit transit centers, schools, skate-parks, other suggested locations and ride public transit - to find youth where they are and provide resources on-site.

We are currently seeking volunteers who can commit to a weekly, 3-hour shift from 2-5 pm on Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Volunteers will be paired with an experienced member of the outreach team. No previous experience is necessary but volunteers must attend an Outreach Volunteer training. Volunteers must be at least 18, and be willing to spend several hours on their feet regardless of weather.
