Volunteering

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”

                                                                                                            ~ Edmund Burke

We are always in need of Volunteers. Come share your hobbies and interests with our participants, or simply hang out with us during our Open-Rec. You can start volunteering today! Just undergo a simple process.

We ask our volunteers to assist in areas they enjoy, and/or bring down hobbies and things that are of interest them. This is accentual in adding to the family like environment we have created here at Youth Impact. Figuring out the areas, and to what degree an individual will volunteer, has proven very difficult if the potential volunteer has not attended an orientation.

Please also be sure to call ahead of time or check Facebook page during inclement weather, as our program may be closed.

Orientation Schedule

School Year 

  • Monday: 5:45pm
  • Wednesday:  1:30pm and 5:45pm

Summer

  • Monday:  1:00pm
  • Tuesday:  2:30pm

Always call during holiday weeks for orientation schedule. Volunteer Orientations generally last 45 minutes – 1 hour in length. Please make sure that if you are attending a Volunteer Orientation, you arrive 5-10 minutes early. If you arrive after the scheduled start of orientation, you will be asked to come back to another orientation. You are allowed to begin volunteering as soon as you have completed the Orientation (same day or any following scheduled day of program).

Continuing Volunteering

Once a volunteer has acquired his/her hours required for course studies at WSU or has been in regular attendance for one (1) month, a thorough background check, driver’s history and some classes will be required to continue volunteering with the Youth Impact Program. If you have further questions please contact:

So much of our program’s personality comes from individuals who volunteer their time with us and are not on the program’s payroll. Each year we recognize one of those individuals who truly add to our melting pot of personalities and share their hobbies and talents with our young people. These are the folks that have been awarded our Volunteer of the Year Award over the years.

Thank you Brody Jerman, our 2015 Youth Impact Volunteer of the Year
