We Love Our Volunteers!

Youth Rise Texas is a community-driven project of love and action, and we wouldn’t have made it into our second year without the love and action of our dedicated friends who volunteer with us.  We look forward to making and working with even more friends!  We’re currently seeking to fill volunteer positions throughout the summer, and we especially need friends who have daytime availability and reliable transportation.  Our summer program runs June 12-July 29, with the week of July 4 off.

Are you interested in helping out for a couple of hours one day per week this summer?  We need folks who want to share a meal and help us out during lunchtime, people who can support the behind-the-scenes work of our summer program, and friends who like to have fun to go on field trips with us on Thursdays. Email youthrisetx@gmail.com with your availability and let us know if you have any special skills to contribute, and we’ll get back to you about what positions we have availabile.

We hope to hear from you!
