Youth Service Team (YST) assists youth at-risk who need to complete 20 hours of community service.
The youth we serve do not have the many advantages that they need to overcome the challenges they face in today’s world. This program gives youth from diverse backgrounds a greater presence in the community, meaningful inter-generational connection and valuable life skills.
Promoting the core values of respect, self-awareness, connectedness and responsibility, YST participants give back to the community by:
- Preparing meals for homeless shelters
- Serving meals to hungry people
- Working on environmental restoration projects
- Volunteering at fundraising events
- Helping out at senior centers
- Having fun with adults with developmental disabilities
- Learning about public service
This restorative justice program is in partnership with Open The World, the County of Marin and local non-profit organization hosts. We need your investment to continue this successful program. Your support will underwrite credentialed counselors, programming, transportation, healthy meals and volunteer coordination.
Let’s make this another successful year for YST! All donations are 100% tax deductible and help youth make a positive contribution in our community.
