Volunteer & H.E.L.P. Students!

With 471 identified homeless students during the 2010-11 school year, an increase from 411 the previous year, volunteers play a crucial role in our HELP Centers’ ability to work with the students to eliminate barriers to education and achieve success. At the HELP Centers, there are clothing and resources to meet the students’ immediate needs. There are also educational enrichment programs offered through the centers.

In order to run these programs and expand our capacity to serve students, volunteers are needed. Volunteer opportunities range from one-time events to on-going positions. “Whether you are behind the scenes folding donated clothes or you are helping a student achieve academic success in our tutoring sessions, you make the difference. Sometimes just having a stable positive person in their lives can mean so much for a child,” says Hanna Connett, the North County Volunteer Coordinator.
