What we're looking for in volunteers

Maybe you’ve lived it. You’ve climbed that hill and made it. Or maybe you’re an ally looking to expand your table. If this sounds like you, we’d love for you to join our team.

Volunteer Roles

Youth Educator

This one is vital - you’ll be implementing our DES curriculum and assisting students with skill development. Together with the DES Program Director, you’ll ensure students comprehend learning materials and achieve curriculum objectives, while promoting a positive, inclusive learning environment for all students.

Success Coach

You’ll serve as a role model, advisor, advocate, and ally to DES youth. Success Coaches challenge and encourage students to own their learning journey, add to their arsenal of skills and achieve their best — personally and creatively. Provide active guidance to help students successfully progress through the program and identify their pathway.

Special Event Coordinator

You’ll help plan, organize and implement successful DES events by working on event committees, assisting on the event day and/or participating in the event.
