Christopher Youth Center values the time and effort of all our supporters to insure that youth in need are able to access help.
With the growing need of youth in this area, additional support is always needed.
How can you help?
Volunteers are always needed to support Christopher Youth Center/Safe Place. After completing an application and attending training, volunteers respond to teens in crisis at Safe Place locations in their neighborhood. Traditionally, male volunteers respond to male youth, and female volunteers respond to female youth.
Volunteers are also needed for community events, to assist with supervision during youth outings and special events in general.
This unique volunteer opportunity provides a vital service to youth that need help, yet the time commitment from any one individual is minimal.
Express your interest in helping your community’s young people by becoming a Safe Place and/or Christopher Youth Center volunteer by calling 343-TEEN.
Make a fast & secure, online gift using PayPal (using your checking account, credit or debit card) to conserve resources and make your donation go further to help homeless, troubled youth in northeast Louisiana.
