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 newspapers to our hard-working vendors

The backbone of our organization, our Newspaper Distribution volunteers work to distributing newspapers to our vendors. These volunteers work a weekly four-hour shift from our office at 1317 G St. NW. Volunteers must be available for at least one shift M-F either 9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm.

Help us throw spectacular events

From film screenings to theatre performances, we regularly host multimedia events that showcase the incredible work of our vendor/artists. Event Volunteers are a critical cog in helping these events run smoothly. Events happen during and after regular business hours.

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. The forum committee meets on Wednesday evenings.

Plan our year-end fundraising Celebration

Every September, Street Sense Media hosts a multimedia gallery that showcases the work of our vendor-artists and raises funds to support them. Beginning six months before the event, volunteer members of the Celebration Committee work to plan and coordinate this critical fundraising event.
