The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Come volunteer with YEAH! (Youth Engagement Advocacy Housing), Berkeley's only shelter for transitional age youth (18-25). We assist young people who are currently homeless by providing basic relief from the stress of living on the street. We are also dedicated to co-creating a community of mutual support and respect.
Help and volunteer by cooking meals, serving food, assisting staff and getting to know youth 18-25, who are currently homeless. YEAH! seeks to build a community that transforms and changes lives--not only the lives of the youth staying here, but also the lives of the volunteers and staff. Our shelter is open from November 19 until Mid-May. We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a consistent shift through out these 6 months. Shifts are weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly depending on the position.
We require every volunteer to go through a training before they begin working at YEAH! The training is only about 1.5 hr. Please respond to this post to find out when the next scheduled training is.
