“I am a firm believer that one should share one‘s good fortunes, and this is one of the main reasons I volunteer at the YSM Clothing Drive [for the past 12 years]. The cause is so rewarding for all those who have lost their way, and helps them to find some hope and dignity. We have so much to be thankful for.” – Les, PATH Clothing Drive Volunteer.

Volunteers play a vital role helping-out in a variety of ways from tutoring children and serving meals to mentoring young adults or sharing professional health care services. Your time commitment can vary from an occasional, as-needed, opportunity to a regularly scheduled commitment with us, helping in significant and lasting ways. Consider joining our team of over 3500 committed volunteers by viewing our current open volunteer opportunities listed below.



We have group volunteer opportunities such as preparing and serving meals, craft workshops with street-involved youth and more!
