YouthCare is following the guidance from King County Public Health for guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Due to safety precautions, we are slowly phasing volunteers back into limited programs. Click below for ways to volunteer now, and keep checking back as we will be continuing to add more volunteer opportunities in the next few months. Also, please check out what we need now to learn about more ways you can help remotely. Thank you!
TAKE ACTION NOW
Deliver a Meal
Food is our biggest need! Do you enjoy cooking? Use your skills to provide healthy, delicious meals for young people in our care. Cook at home (or order from a local restaurant) and deliver to one of our programs so youth can get the nourishment they need to reach their potential! To learn more or sign up, click here!
Host a Safe Place Awareness Campaign!
Use your voice to raise awareness about Safe Place, a resource that connects runaway and homeless youth ages 12-17 to help 24/7, anywhere in King County. You have the power to help your peers learn of this important resource – you never know who may need help one day! Get creative and spread the word — launch your Safe Place Awareness Campaign today. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Make Fleece Blankets
Help youth stay warm with homemade no-sew blankets! This is a fun and creative way to help youth. These blankets will get lots of love in the apartment a young person just moved into, in one of our shelters, or anywhere where youth can snuggle up and feel its warmth. You can volunteer on your own time and make these blankets anywhere! Pick out some fun (youth-appropriate) fleece and a pair of scissors! We recommend this YouTube video to get instructions. We need twin-sized or queen-sized blankets the most!
