Become a Volunteer!

We welcome volunteers as an essential piece of the work done at Jackson Street. Our volunteers share their skills and provide new experiences and opportunities for youth to grow through activities and classes — anything from nutrition education and cooking meals, to repairing bikes and doing maintenance work, to yoga classes, Rec nights, and gardening. Volunteers also help with fundraisers and organizing special events; they tutor, mentor and much more!

You can become a volunteer too!
