Perhaps you have a desire combined with a talent or skill to help our youth through volunteering? Our volunteers are an essential part of making us successful. Volunteers have an enormous impact. Whether helping directly with kids or assisting with other tasks, they model healthy behavior, express genuine love and care, and build positive relationships with the youth.

Ways to volunteer with Fairbanks Youth Advocates

  • Work with kids at the Door  (help meet youth needs and provide supervision). 
  • Volunteer as a group (making food bags, sorting donations, organizing and other large tasks).
  • Volunteers help in the office, they shop, they provide maintenance, and more.
  • Serve on the Board of Directors or a Working Committee.

Volunteer-CollageVolunteers hang out, prepare meals, and help guide youth to reach personal goals.

Volunteer as an individual

Individual volunteers working directly with kids at The Door, regularly, help make a difference in the lives of kids.

We ask our volunteers who work with youth to try to contribute a minimum of two 4 hour shifts per month, or a total of 8 hours per month. Monday through Friday volunteer shifts currently are 4:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. & 8:00p.m. to midnight. On weekends and holidays, the volunteer shifts fall between 8:00a.m. and Midnight.

If you are interested, complete the Volunteer Application.  It is an online application and comes directly into our email box. If you haven't heard from us in a week, or if you have questions, please call 374-5678.

Email Hannah@fairbanksyouthadvocates.org with any questions about other ways to help. Thank you in advance for considering helping the youth in our community.

Volunteer as a Group

Groups of volunteers offer tremendous assistance when a major task is undertaken, like cleaning, sorting donations, yard work, making food bags, etc. These are perfect opportunities for youth groups, church groups, school groups, family groups, or others to join in collectively and make their mark. If your group would like to volunteer, please call The Door at 374-5678 or email our Volunteer In Service To America, our VISTA, at Julie@fairbanksyouthadvocates.org

Why I volunteer

"The kids....for the kids."

~ Brian K., Volunteer

"Because I was homeless and I know what it feels like..."

~ Anonymous

“I volunteer because I hope to be able to confirm in those who are homeless, scared, and adrift that there is a safe and fulfilling future awaiting them.

~ Kathryn Birch, Board Member
