Shelter Staff Role
Shelter staff oversee daily operations at the shelter. As a shelter staff member, you will be tasked with running overnight shifts (7 pm – 7 am) with two other members about twice a month (for a total of 5 per quarter), however volunteers will be allowed to sleep at midnight once all duties have been completed. These duties include taking attendance of nightly residents, making dinner for the residents/staff, sharing a meal together, handling logistics, ensuring the safety of all occupants, locking and unlocking the shelter, and maintaining general upkeep of the shelter. Staff members are integral to daily shelter operations, therefore requiring individuals who display responsibility, management skills, and a passion for addressing youth homelessness!
