Share your Passions: Teach a Workshop to Folks Experiencing Homelessness

Save to Favorites

Downtown Streets Team Redwood City

Research shows that contributing factors to addiction and other self-destructive behaviors are isolation and a lost sense of purpose. Our Teams help battle these issues by bringing people experiencing homelessness together to serve their communities.

One way we want to further build connections and foster a sense of purpose for our Team Members is by giving them more opportunities to gain productive skills and hobbies. That's where you come in. We want volunteers like YOU, with unique passions, skills, and knowledge, to share that knowledge with our Team Members by teaching a workshop.

These workshops can be on anything -- from meditation to team-work to creative writing -- as long as you are knowledgable and passionate enough on the subject to teach it. Workshops should be between 30 minutes and 1 hour in length. You may volunteer to teach just once or as a weekly or monthly recurring class, depending on your interest and availability.

If you're ready to make a difference in the lives of others by sharing your passion, click the "I Want to Help" button and let us know what type of workshop you'd like to teach. We'll be in touch shortly with more details.

Mission Statement

Downtown Streets Team's mission is to end homelessness through the dignity of work. Our Teams restore dignity, hope, and purpose to the lives of folks who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness while challenging perceptions of homelessness in their community. Team Members volunteer their time to help beautify their community, and in exchange for their work they receive employment specialist and case management services to help them meet their goals, as well as a non-cash stipend to help them cover basic needs as they get back on their feet. We believe that the dignity our Teams provide is a powerful tool to motivate Team Members to be a part of their own solution. In the words of one of our Team Members, DST is a win-win-win situation: it's a win for the Team Member, a win for the community, and a win for the environment. Come join us in breaking down barriers and ending homelessness one day at a time!
