Our volunteers are the heart and soul of many of our day-to-day operations. Check out the volunteer opportunities listed below. If one (or more) of them catches your eye, fill out our volunteer application, email to Angela Heim, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll find a place for you.
Provide a Meal: YES provides meals to over 600 youth a month. You can help with this service by preparing meals off-site and delivering them to our Street Outreach Center ready to be served to our youth who visit daily. This facility is open Monday-Friday with varying hours and numbers of youth served each day. Please contact the office for additional information or sign-up online.
Assist with child care at our Maternity Home: Once a week, YES youth come together with their case managers and program staff where they participate in trainings, workshops, and community events. Volunteers are needed on Tuesday evenings to assist with child care to allow our youth to fully participate in these activities.
Tip Top Thrift Shop Volunteer: Donate, shop, or volunteer! Tip Top Thrift Shop is a committed partner in raising funds for YES. Help our mission prosper by sorting donations, cashiering, or assisting customers at the store. Tip Top is located in the heart of Benson at 5910 Maple Street.
Mentor: Join our Mentoring program and invest in Omaha’s youth. Provide support and guidance to young mothers in our Maternity Home or young adults in our Transitional Living Program. Visit our Mentor page for more information.
