Becoming an Outreach Counselor

The first reaction I receive when I say I work with homeless youth is:

"That must be challenging."

Yes, outreach counseling is challenging, but it is also rewarding. We meet many wonderful youth each week. We educate them on the services within their community, provide them with immediate resources (e.g., food, clothes), and, most importantly, we provide them with someone who cares who they are and what they want out of life.

As an outreach counselor, you learn how to face your fears. And the funny thing is that all those fears don't seem so large in the scheme of things when you realize that "Your worst day will never be as bad as these kids best days" (Rick Koca).

How would you feel if you could save a life?

Find out by becoming a member of our outreach team. Our next Information Session is at the Worcester Downtown Common on Saturday, April 24th at 11:30AM.
