Volunteer Opportunities

Want to know what volunteering at YouthLink is like? Hear what Cora, one of our clothing closet volunteers, has to say:

“When a young person comes into the clothing closet and finds a great new outfit for an interview, a new warm jacket, or just a pair of jeans that fits perfectly, it relieves a tiny bit of the immense amount of stress that they carry around with them every day.  I love being a part of those little successes, and enjoy all the interactions I have with the people here: listening to personal stories and goals, and sharing laughs.  The young people here face so many challenges, but they keep on pushing forward—their strength amazes me.” – Cora, clothing closet volunteer

“I think I’ve used just about everything here—the clothing closet, hygiene supplies, GED tutoring and vouchers, the health clinic, the Internet. It’s all in one place, and the people here know me. They really care about me.”
