Youth Council for the Homeless

Our Youth Council for the Homeless provides volunteer opportunities designed for high school students who want to help make a difference in the lives of homeless children, families and individuals.

Opportunities include:

  • Preparing and serving a meal for up to 150 people at our Walk-In Dinner Program in Hackensack.
  • Starting a homelessness awareness group at your school.
  • Organizing and participating in fundraising events for Camp Lots-of-Fun.
  • Assisting at Family Promise events throughout the year.
  • Applying for a Camp Counselor position.
    Applications are now being accepted for volunteer camp counselor positions. Applicants must be 14 years old by the first day of camp and be in high school the following September. Join us this summer and make a difference in the life of a homeless child! 

Youth Council meetings are held monthly at Central Unitarian Church, 156 Forest Ave., Paramus.
