HomePlate is a safe space for youth experiencing homelessness and housing instability. We have a team of core colunteers that build empowering relationships with our diverse youth, and serve as a positive adult role models and mentors.

Core volunteers are great listeners, friendly, and help support youth with accessing resources. Core volunteers do different things during drop in, such as greeting people at the welcome table, helping with child care, coordinating arts and crafts, playing games, having conversations, helping with job searches, resumes, and more.

It's a great way to meet new people, learn more about our community, and give back.

Core volunteers need to be at least 18 (preferably older), commit to volunteering every weekfor at least six months, fill out info for a background and refernce check, complete a volunteer survey, and attend our four hour orientation and training for new volunteers .
