Ally Volunteers (Ages 15 - 18) - Support Programming for Homeless Youth
3 people are interested
Ally Volunteers are responsible individuals ages 15 - 18 years who provide consistency, peer modeling, and positive connections to homeless youth guests during the Teen Feed meal. Allies help with program set-up, guest sign in, and distribution of basic needs. They also provide backup kitchen support for nightly meal teams when needed. Allies serve at University District Meal Site locations which rotate throughout the week.
Requirements: Allies commit to a weekly volunteer shift for one year (don't be concerned about the length, we will work with you!). Ally volunteers must complete the Teen Feed Remote Training and will complete three shadow shifts with an experienced volunteer.
06:30 PM to 08:30 PM
Ally shifts are 6:30-8:30pm every day of the week.

With the tremendous support of the community, Teen Feed responds to the most basic needs of homeless youth with integrated programs: Teen Feed Meal Program, Street Talk Outreach Program (STOP), Service Links for Youth (SLY) and Youth Access to Care (YAC).
Thanks to your partnership in 2015 Teen Feed:
- Opened its doors to 50 - 80 youth each night
- Offered over 20,000 nutritious meals to hungry youth
- connected with over 600 individual youth in need
- worked with over 800 volunteers, who donated over $130,000 in food
In 1987, nurses from the University of Washington Medical Center noticed that many street youth accessing the emergency room were severely malnourished. The community responded, and faith groups, service providers, and neighbors came together to provide food to the University District’s homeless youth population. Teen Feed was born, and now we average 40-50 guests each evening. Teen Feed is the only provider of meals specifically to youth and young adults in the University District open regularly every night of the week.
