StandUp For Kids (SUFK) is a national, all-volunteer organization with active programs in 30 U.S. cities. We help youth who are on their own, having run away from or been kicked out of an unsafe (usually abusive) home. They are trying to restart their lives.
The Silicon Valley chapter is about to open an OUTREACH CENTER where homeless and at risk youth can come after school to hang out safely, get a hot meal, use computers, take a shower, do laundry, and talk to our volunteer mentors. you can make a real difference in these kids' lives by being a caring and trustworthy adult for them.
Various jobs working with youth at our center will include:
Talking with and mentoring kids in making good life decisions
Working at the reception desk to register kids, track attendees, and assign daily chores
Help serving hot meals (prepared by other organizations)
Monitoring supplies (food, clothing, hygiene) taken by youth
Completing nightly checklist and closing the center
There will always be at least 3 volunteers on duty together. The center is located downtown at Hedding and First street. It will be open Mon/Wed 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm and Sat (1:00 - 4:00 PM). If you have 3-4 hours per week and would like to help us, please email [email protected] Training will be provided!
