YOU CAN HELP

Help Out!Valley Youth House serves children and families regardless of their ability to pay. Less than 2% of our revenue comes from client fees, with much of our funding from federal, state and local government grants. Unfortunately, these sources of funding are inadequate to meet the needs of all our community’s children and families in need. Generous support from our community allows us to expand our ability to serve local abused, neglected and homeless youth. You can help us offer every child a chance to develop into a happy, healthy, and productive adult:

  • you Can helpBe a Mentor. The children we serve are facing today’s difficult world with many more hurdles to overcome than others their age. Volunteering in the Child Mentor Program provides you the opportunity to offer support, role modeling, tutoring, recreational activities, and life skills development on an outreach basis in the child’s home or community. By volunteering your time to build a supportive relationship with a youth, you can help them reach their full potential and thrive in the community. The program is demanding: Training is required and the children need a commitment of four hours a week, but the rewards are immense. Contact Kara Williams.

 

  • Student Internships are available for qualified graduate and undergraduate students. Internships are offered in human services, education, recreation, administration, information technology, and public relations. Learn more from our Internship Manual, or contact Elizabeth Allen.
