If you want to really make a difference, Tumbleweed is the place for you. These teens are hungry for positive adult role models. There is the opportunity to do anything you like - from administrative effort in the office to direct contact with the clients. The drop in centers are always looking for people with special interests (art skills, cooking, etc.) Are you interested in helping with resume writing, GED tutoring, art classes, public speaking, how to interview . . . . We need you! Come and make a difference to these kids.
