More than 300 volunteers give approximately 20,000 hours of their time and talents to Alternatives For Girls each year. New volunteers go through an orientation. Those working with girls and young women participating in AFG programs also receive training. Current volunteer opportunities include:
- Street Outreach: Volunteers go out in AFG vans on the streets of Detroit where they provide “Help Cards”, food, harm-reduction kits, warm clothing, and transportation to young women in crisis or at risk. Learn more about Street Outreach.
- Administration: Volunteers may assist with mailings, clerical duties, errands or facility maintenance.
- Events: Volunteers may serve on fundraising event planning committees or assist with event tasks such as registration, coat check, set up and break down, silent auction, etc.
- Mentors For Mothers: AFG has recently launched a new program focused on Infant Mental Health, and we are seeking mentors for the young mothers in the program. Click here to download the Mentors and Mothers flyer with more information.
