Adult Volunteer Opportunities

Adult Volunteer Opportunities

We’re looking for skilled and enthusiastic volunteers with big hearts. If you love young people and believe every one of them deserves a safe home, we can find a way for you to get involved. Here are some ways you can help:

Drop-in Volunteer Needed:

On an as needed basis, to work with another staff member in our Drop In Center with 15-24 year olds.  May include assisting young people with looking for employment, getting connected to housing, basic needs and food.  The shifts are Mon-Thurs 2:30-5:00.  Your name would be on a list to call when we need a substitute.  If interested, please call Carley at 952-988-5345

Development:

MoveFwd needs volunteers who know how to make our organization grow through cultivating new donors and developing relationships with local corporations who believe in our mission.

Communications: 

We need people with excellent marketing, public relations, writing and/or social media skills to make sure our young people and community know about MoveFwd.

Finance: 

We need accounting/financial professionals to oversee financial information and procedures to support MoveFwd staff and our Board of Directors. 

Governance & Nominating:

We need volunteers to ensure we find people who want to share their gifts with MoveFwd and provide general oversight to Board of Director governance.

Special Events Committee: 

We need enthusiastic well-organized volunteers to plan approximately three fundraising/awareness events per year.

Suburban Host Home Volunteers: 

Consider hosting a young person (18-21) in your home for up to 18 months. We will let you know about the next free information session where you can learn more about how the Suburban Host Home Program recruits, screens, trains, and supports adult volunteers, then matches suburban homeless youth with those volunteer host homes.
