Project Details

Did you know every year 4.2 million youth experience homelessness? Just last year, 1 out of 30 youth ages 13-17 were affected. National Runaway Safeline is looking for dedicated, compassionate volunteers ages 16 and over to help keep youth safe and off the streets. Our volunteers speak directly to youth and families all over the country seeking vital resources in their community. Youth reach out to us seeking shelter, food and mental health resources or they are still at home and need someone who will listen to their story. We need you to help make a difference in someone’s life!

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to 2-4 hours a week regularly for 6 months. We offer flexible scheduling. Our volunteers are trained to provide solution-focused crisis intervention. Click here to find out why our volunteers chose to be part of our wonderful, supportive community.
