About

Join Youthway Center to inspire, empower and encourage youth to reach their fullest potential. A safe afterschool environment is provided where youth receive homework help, snacks, activities and bicycle repairs (depending on volunteer availability).

Join YouthWay Center's food recovery team! The team partners with local Target stores, Cub Foods, and 5 local school districts providing 65,000 weekly meals benefitting YouthWay Center children and their families. Here are several immediate ways that you can become involved within this organization:

  • Encourage children to reach their full potential at YouthWay Ministries as a homework helper or help check- in youth at the center. Shifts are flexible for 2-3 hours in the afternoon Monday-Friday.
  • Pick up recovered food at local Target and Cub Foods locations or at one of the 5 school districts. Pick up locations vary by day with 2 hour shifts available during daytime hours. You choose the day.
  • Become part of the sorting crew to go through food and determine which food items are useable. Sort and organize foods for easier distribution. Shifts average 2 hours on Saturday mornings.
  • Help distribute food to local families on Saturday mornings from 11:00-1:00 p.m.
  • Join the clean-up crew to organize after the Saturday food distribution. Shifts are generally 2-3 hours.
