Want to Volunteer?

 

The Cove is looking for caring and committed volunteers to help us create a safe place where youth experiencing homelessness can thrive.

We need:

  • Tutors/mentors: Caring adults willing to commit at least one school year (beginning fall 2016) to helping students with homework or eating dinner with them. A caring adult can have a huge impact on a student's life!  
  • General Volunteers: We need general volunteers to help sign students in at the front door, help students find and use the Cove's resources, and generally supervise students. 
  • Meal providers: Provide a hot meal to feed between 30-40 students and volunteers. Meals should be delivered to the Cove by 6pm on the day you are scheduled to cook. We'll need meal volunteers beginning fall 2016. 
  • Donation Coordinator: We are in need of a volunteer Donations Coordinator! This will involve communicating with in-kind donors and organizing in-kind donations that have already been given to the Cove. If you're interested in serving in this capacity, please say so in your application when it asks how you would like to serve at the Cove. 
  • If you'd like to volunteer in another way, please let us know. We love to hear creative ideas about how you'd like to serve our students!
