Calling all high school students! After completing a required orientation, teens can volunteer in several ways to support our mission. We have Teen Time created for 14/15 year olds working alongside other teens under the leadership of our experienced volunteers. For 16/17 year olds we have flexibility to volunteer with other teens, or with our adult volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are Monday and Thursday after school and Saturday mornings.
We also have a Teen Advisory Board. The elected teen officers lead the teen board in the planning of events and activities to support our mission. Applications for board membership will be in August. Each summer we also have a Leadership Skills program during June and July for 16/17 year old teens. Application for this program will be in May 2018.Sign Up Here
Did you know that 1 in 5 kids can’t count on three meals a day? Now, kids aged 6+ can help feed other local children via service parties at Loaves & Fishes! In groups of 6-12 (accompanied by one adult for every 4 children), kids can learn about our mission and then get directly involved in one or more of the following:
- Pack healthy snack bags for kids
- Bundle diapers for babies
- Fill the shelves of our grocery market
This is the perfect opportunity for scouts, teams, faith youth groups or neighbors to perform hands-on activities that benefit our community! We book these in well in advance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to check for future availability!
Loaves & Fishes loves working with schools to educate students about hunger in their community and inspire them to work to end it. Here are ways we can work together:
- Invite a Loaves & Fishes representative to speak to your class, club, or all-school assembly
- Organize a tour of our facility for a class or a group of grade-level representatives
- Sponsor an all-school food drive/donation competition
