As we move into the second year of street outreach, we would like to try out other street outreach locations. Right now we focus on Downtown and Main South. Any suggestions on other places to try street outreach would be great. We outreach to kids 21 years and under.
What do we provide?
- Immediate resources (e.g., food, clothes, sleeping bags)
- Long term support (educational assistance, job search support, life-skills training, etc.)
- Counselors who care and, at even turn, prove it
Currently, Rob Donnelly and Kristina England are working on updating both the basic volunteer training and street outreach training. As the program makes plans for an Outreach Center, we will also need to look at developing training materials for Outreach Center counselors.
The next Volunteer Information Session is scheduled for Wednesday, June 24th at 7:00 p.m. in the Worcester Public Library. Come check it out. We have a great group of volunteers and, with an Outreach Center in the near future, we could really use a few more extra hands.
