VOLUNTEER

At this time, we have suspended volunteer operations in order to protect the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and clients during the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. We will update volunteer activities here on the website, on Facebook, and through our email lists.

At Lost-n-Found Youth, volunteers are essential to our success. There are opportunities for everyone to be involved in the work we are doing to end homelessness for Atlanta’s LGBTQ youth. We welcome individuals and groups to sort donations at our thrift store, serve a meal at the youth center, engage in street outreach, and more. For more information, contact Danielle Williams, Volunteer and Development Coordinator at [email protected].

Our Volunteer Program

We provide volunteer orientations prior to welcoming new members of the community to help us with our mission. Orientations last about an hour. You will learn more about the history of our organization and discover ways in which you can give your time to help end homelessness for Atlanta’s LGBTQ youth. Please bring $20 to cover the cost of your background check.

Though we have suspended regular volunteer operations due to COVID19, we will be holding a volunteer orientation on June 24 at Noon via Zoom so that potential volunteers can learn more about the organizations and ways to be involved. To get zoom information, email [email protected]-found.org

VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION DATE – TBD

If you would like to host a volunteer orientation for your employee resource group, school group, or faith community, or to schedule group volunteer activities, contact Danielle Williams, Volunteer and Development Coordinator, at [email protected] or (470) 346-0389. 

STREET OUTREACH

Our street outreach volunteers work with our Outreach Coordinator to reach youth on the streets experiencing homelessness so that they know our services are available.

THRIFT STORE

Volunteers help with processing and sorting donated items to the store. You can volunteer at the thrift store any time during business hours without first attending an orientation. Have an hour to spare? We can always use some help sorting donations.

YOUTH HOME

We engage volunteers at our transitional house to help with overnight needs. We also host groups at the transitional house to do minor repairs and yard projects.

YOUTH CENTER

Our youth center volunteers assist the youth center staff by assisting with check-in, serving meals, engaging clients in conversation and leading enrichment programs.
