Many different ways to support homeless young people

by YMCA Open Door

YMCA Open Door believes that every young person should have a safe place to stay. Your skills and experience could make a real difference in work as volunteers are crucial to us here at YMCA Open Door.
Drivers and chaperones keep people safe and off the streets every night and would be an amazing opportunity for anybody seeking to help. We also would appreciate anyone volunteering to do leaflet dropping, some admin work in the office, assist with host recruitment, promotional events and fundraising activities.
