Corporate/Group Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in supporting our work.
Looking for an opportunity for your team to support a great cause? We have a number of group volunteer opportunities that can make an impact for our organization while helping your team grow and learn. Read on for details about our needs.
Larkin Street really seems to have it dialed – there’s a focus on comprehensive services, a non-judgmental approach to clients (meeting youth where they are versus forcing them to change), and a holistic view of the issue (tackling root causes). I left deeply impressed by the work.

Lunch & Learn
An informative discussion with employees about our services for young people experiencing homelessness, what has changed during COVID-19, and the impacts on the young people we serve. This an important opportunity for those interested in learning more about a complex issue in our community with the opportunity to ask questions.
COVID-19 care kits and personalized cards
Donate contents from the list below and get a group together virtually to create personalized notes for our young people. Each kit could include any variation of the following:
- mini to full-size board games
- adult coloring books
- colored pencils
- books (favorite novels)
- aromatherapy essentials: oils, carriers
- hand lotion (for all the handwashing)
- sanitizer (if available)
DIY Hand Sanitizer
- Gather ingredients and a small bowl.
- Mix the rubbing alcohol and aloe vera gel together until well combined.
- Add in just a few drops of essential oil of your choice, or you can leave out if preferred.
Note: it is very important to use a rubbing alcohol that is 99% alcohol. To be effective, hand sanitizers must be at least 60% alcohol. When you dilute with aloe vera, you cut the alcohol content by 33%. This recipe creates a hand sanitizer that is approximately 65% alcohol.

Masks are a huge need for the young people we serve and our staff. Get a group together virtually to create masks to protect our community. We have an easy instructional mask tutorial for anyone that would like to make reusable masks! The document attached includes an easy to follow tutorial using common materials to make face masks and includes a separate section for anyone that has a 3d printer to make face shields.
If sewing isn’t for you, we have a no-sew option that can be made from T-shirts (not previously owned due to COVID–19 precautions)
