Youth In Need was founded by community volunteers, and today, community friends remain invaluable in helping Youth In Need continue its mission and services.

Volunteers do everything from assisting children and teens in classrooms and residential facilities, to gardening and holding donation drives. Whether you can share an hour of your time or a week, we have an opportunity for you.
