Prospective Volunteer Information

As a YHA volunteer, you'll make an important impact in the lives of vulnerable youth while enjoying the rewards of connecting with like-minded people, contributing to the community, feeling a sense of purpose, learning new skills, and making good use of your free time. Volunteering is also scientifically proven to be good for your mind and body!



Our monthly meetings, (which run about 1 hour) are critical to the continued success of the Auxiliary. While not a requirement, we encourage all volunteers to attend in order to connect and socialize with fellow volunteers, learn about the impact of the work we do, and become educated about Youth Homes Agency.

Meetings are held at the Rossmoor Creekside Center in Walnut Creek.

NOTE: There are no dues associated with being an Auxiliary volunteer, however, donations are always welcome!
