Interested in Helping?

There are many ways to help the young people in our area enter the workforce and achieve their dreams.

Volunteer

The more support the Yoop! participants receive, the more likely they are to succeed!

Volunteering is a great way to enrich the lives of others as well as your own!

Yoop! is looking for volunteers who would like to work directly with the youth. We have tutoring opportunities helping youth learn math, science, social studies, and writing. Another opportunity is assisting youth in programs for gaining job skills.

Also, there are many other volunteer opportunities at CYFS, in addition to the Yoop! program, such as mentoring, office support, facility support projects, fundraising, and board involvement.

To request a printed application please call 503-538-4874 X4.
Send your completed application to volunteer via email to [email protected] or via snail mail to PO Box 636, Newberg, OR 97132

Host an Internship, Job Shadow or Industry Tour

Businesses can help a young person learn the job skills they will need to enter the workforce.

As a local business, you have a lot to offer the youth we serve! You can host a youth intern at your business and teach them important job skills they will use in the future. It is a wonderful feeling to see a youth grow and mature when they gain experience and responsibility within a job. Your business can also benefit with an extra set of hands to help!

As a local business you can support a youth in career exploration, helping them to learn about your business through a half-day or full day job shadow. A look behind the scene helps youth figure out what career path lights them up.

Yoop! Helps prepare youth with a “background” for the workforce when they are seeking the opportunity to chart a new course in their life! Businesses willing to take a risk with these youth find support through the Yoop Internship program, to help these youth get the second chance they need to improve their future. And Yoop pays their internship wages!

Professionals are also encouraged to make presentations about their trade. Another great way to get involved is opening up your business for a tour, which gives Yoop! participants the opportunity to explore their future career path.  Your business can also help by donating extra office supplies.
