VOLUNTEER APPLICATION
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Beat the Streets, Inc. (BTS) Is a Community Resource Center and has provided FREE Supportive Services for all ages for (16) years. We offer Education, Vocational, Life Skills and Re-Entry and Diversion Supportive Services to At-Risk Young Adults ages 11-29.  These services would not be possible without the support of volunteers like you. You will be making a substantial difference in the life of a young adults who are at-risk everyday in failing to achieve their full potential, rather than fall victim to the streets. From wanting to commit suicide, abuse from family, drug addicted, prostitution, sex trafficked, healing from rape/molestation, getting out of gang violence, growing up in/out of juvenile probation and/or prison, homeless and living in their cars, in need of clothing, food, and mental health therapy, they are in dire need of seeing there is hope and that help is on the way because there are people who truly care to assist in some way. COVID-19 has created isolation, these youth need to be inspired, taught life skills, prepare to achieve goals, learn to laugh, fellowship with others, and see that there are people that genuinely care about them. Due to the nature of our work, all volunteers must be 16-years & up (with parent consent) or older to apply to be considered for a volunteer role and complete a background check for a fee of $50. Please complete and submit the application. Please feel free to contact Maria Morales, Program Director either by e-email mmorales@beatthestreetsca.org or text (925) 446-7483 with any questions anytime. Not only do our young adults need your inspiration, your wisdom, your experience but our staff need you as well.  We are here to support you and look forward to having you as a part of the BTS Team.
