StandUp For Kids was founded in 1990 and we have been helping homeless kids ever since. You can find StandUp For Kids chapters throughout the U.S. We are proud to say StandUp originated right here in San Diego.

We are looking for compassionate and understanding individuals to work at our drop-in center in Downtown San Diego. We work with a diverse group of homeless youth providing a safe environment 6 nights a week. During that evening our volunteers engage with youth while providing help with immediate needs, such as a hot dinner, showers, hygiene products, clothes, sleeping bags, etc. We develop positive relationships and mentor the kids - providing assistance with jobs, education and housing.

Our next training is scheduled for: Saturday, September 7th
If interested, please email: sdtrainer@standupkids.org

Please note we need volunteers on the following nights: Monday, Wednesday and Friday

About StandUp for Kids - San Diego, CA

Location:

3401 Adams Avenue, Suite A, San Diego, CA 92116, US

Mission Statement

Ending the cycle of youth homelessness. We do this in cities across America, one youth at a time.

Description

StandUp for Kids - San Diego opened its doors in 1990 as the first StandUp for Kids chapter. StandUp for Kids - San Diego operates four core programs:

  • Outreach Drop-In Center
  • Street Outreach
  • Mentoring
  • Apartment Support

Teen homelessness rates are on the rise. Our concern is that homeless kids are the most likely target of human traffickers, pornographers and gangs. These vulnerable kids are forced to endure unimaginable horrors, just to survive.

Our main focus is on prevention; providing an array of resources and services to help homeless youth on their journey to self-sufficient adulthood.
