About

StandUp For Kids is committed to the help and rescue of homeless and street kids. We do this, every day, in cities across America. We carry out our mission through our volunteers who go to the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives. We have been on the streets since January 1990 and continue to grow our organization to help America's homeless youth.

The Director of Outreach manages the local program’s outreach efforts. While this generally consists of street outreach, it’s up to the individual local program to determine the appropriate type of outreach to conduct based upon their unique environment, resources, and needs. For example, some programs work entirely within the alternative school system and others host an outreach center - yet do not perform street outreach.

General Responsibilities:

  • Determines, with outreach supervisors, the location and hours when outreach will be conducted;
  • Oversees all outreach activities and ensures that all outreach counselors are qualified to work with homeless and street kids;
  • Ensures that all outreach activities are conducted within the mission of STANDUP FOR KIDS;
  • Ensures that outreach reports are completed for each and every outreach activity. An outreach activity occurs whenever contact is made with one of our kids;
  • Compiles outreach statistics and submits on a monthly basis;
  • Maintains a positive street image with our kids, volunteers, and local businesses.
