Volunteer Opportunities


build relationships with youth at Drop-in!

Our Drop-in Center provides basic and immediate needs of youth, including food, hygiene items, showers, clothing, and laundry. It is here that SYM staff and volunteers first meet youth, learn their stories and build relationships with them. Drop-in volunteers help us to make connections and meet needs of youth that come to our space.
