Our mission to empower people experiencing homelessness depends heavily on volunteers from our community. Want to get involved? Check out our volunteer opportunities below.
Distribute payments to our vendors
The backbone of our organization, our Homelessness Direct-Engagement Volunteers distribute newspapers to our artist/vendors and staff the app desk. These volunteers work a weekly four-hour shift from our office at 1317 G St. NW. Click here to download the position’s job description. Volunteers must be available for at least one shift M-F 9 am – 4 pm. If interested, contact [email protected].
Help us throw spectacular events
From film screenings to theatre performances, we regularly host multimedia events that showcase the incredible work of our artist/vendors. Event volunteers are a critical cog in helping these events run smoothly. Events happen during and after regular business hours. If interested, contact [email protected].
Plan engaging community forums
Volunteer members of our Community Forum Committee plan forums that touch on topics of homelessness, such as mental health and criminal justice. If interested, contact [email protected]. This work is currently on hold due to restrictions on gathering in person.
Plan our annual fundraising Celebration (remote)
Every year, Street Sense Media hosts a multimedia gallery that showcases the work of our artist/vendors and raises funds to support them. Beginning six months before the event, volunteers work to plan and coordinate this critical fundraising event. If interested, contact [email protected].
