Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Larkin Street Youth Services!

Dedicated volunteers help us provide nationally recognized services to young people experiencing homelessness. We aim to find opportunities which connect your experience and interests with our needs. We offer traditional and out-of-the-box ways to engage.

There are minimal opportunities to work directly with our young people due to security and confidentiality concerns. We hope you understand.

If you have an unexpected skill not listed, please let us know and we will try to find synergy!


Volunteer Opportunities for Individuals:

  • Professional Skills
  • Food Support
  • Larkin Street Alliance
  • Administrative Support
  • Gratitude Committee
  • Client Support*
  • Special Events
  • Friends of Larkin Street

*in order to work directly with our young people, we require special training in addition to an at least six month commitment.


When choosing an area of interest, we ask that you consider making a six month commitment. This is required for some positions, but advised for others.
