Youth Development Volunteer 

Youth Development Volunteers assist our Youth Development Professionals by helping with our afterschool program including assisting and leading engaging activities, handing out snack, monitoring recess, and helping youth with academic work during power hour. Like our YDPs, YDVs receive comprehensive training on how to work with youth that can be transferred to other youth work occupations. YDVs have the opportunity to volunteer from 3:30-6:30 MTThF, and 1-6:30 on Wednesday during the regular school year. This is by far our largest area of need.
