Thank You for your interest in volunteering with Teen Feed ! "Teen Feed works with the community to offer support to meet basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with houseless youth as they meet their future off the streets." Our STOP (Street Talk Outreach Program) is divided into two different roles: Outreach & Inreach Outreach: Direct service team who work to meet youth and young adults with housing insecurities in the streets, alleyways, and parks of Seattle's University District and surrounding Seattle Areas. Meeting Youth where they are in order to provide information about services and basic needs items. Outreach volunteers will ideally commit to one year with Teen Feed and receive training in de - escalation, anti - oppression, and Intro to Youth Homelessness. Inreach: Come hang out and build meaningful relationships by playing card games and D&D, doing art, watching movies, and creating connections that help lift youth out of poverty through empathy, not fixing. Meeting youth “where they’re at,” this time and space is for youth to use how they choose, with the support of In-Reach volunteers to help maintain a safe and welcoming space. Weekly commitment for at least 6 months (a year ideal)  in order to build consistency for youth. As a STOP volunteer you have the choice to be involved in either one or both roles Through service at Teen Feed, we hope to reinforce values of equity, fairness, and justice to create a compassionate and inclusive community, challenge stereotypes, and raise awareness about youth housing insecurity. Teen Feed’s guests represent diversity in experience, background, age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc. and Teen Feed aims to create a volunteer corps reflective of the diversity of our youth - those who represent diverse identities and/or have lived experience with housing or food insecurity are highly encouraged to apply.
