Volunteers

First Place for Youth offers specialized direct service to the youth we serve. Please consider volunteering to support us, so we can show foster kids that more is possible.

OPPORTUNITIES:

Data Entry & Office Support
We are always looking for data entry and other office support at our Oakland Headquarters, to defray administrative costs and manage fluctuations in workload throughout the year.
First Place Seasonal Events
Help organize events for our young people! Volunteer to set up, donate/prepare/serve food, donate/distribute gifts, or clean up. First Place host events in all of our locations, during the holidays throughout the year. Individuals and small volunteer groups welcome. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Career Mentoring
Share about your current professional, at a First Place location, or at your place of work. Answering questions about what your typical day is like, your path to where you are now, and what employers look for in new hires is both practical and inspiring for our young people.  Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm only.
Fundraising
Host a fundraiser! The money your event raises will help us provide much-needed services for foster kids. First Place staff will assist with communications and marketing of any organized events.
