StandUp For Kids is an all volunteer organization. We are in need of your support. For those who want to get involved in outreach, StandUp For Kids provides sixteen hours of training to provide you the tools to reach out and make a difference in kids' lives.
Thirteen kids die on the street everyday, from abuse, disease and suicide. By getting involved you can make a difference and give back to your community. Volunteering is not only rewarding to you, it can save a kid's life.

To work directly with homeless youth, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, consent to a criminal background investigation ($15 processing fee), and be able to provide 3 character references.
For volunteers who want to work strictly "behind the scenes," a background check is not required (except for Executive Directors).
Volunteers who are between 16-18 years of age may volunteer with the program only with signed parental consent, a background investigation, and 3 character/ leadership references; this may not apply to street outreach or outreach center counselors (at the discretion of each program's leadership committee).
