At Our Tenderloin After-School Program
If you have a few hours during the week and want to inspire young minds, then volunteering at TNDC’s After-School Program (TASP) is for you! The Center serves youth between the ages of 5 and 18 years old and is a safe, supportive space for kids. TASP offers a range of free educational, cultural, artistic, and physical activities. The program is especially eager to enlist volunteers who have strong academic skills to provide tutoring in all subjects—like reading, math, science, and history. TASP operates from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. We have extended hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for teen homework sessions. Please note that volunteers must make a minimum six month commitment and work between 4-6 hours every month. A background check is also required.
If you’re interested in volunteering, Laura Choe, Program Manager, at (415) 358-3908 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Other Volunteer Opportunities
If you’d like to do a one-day project or ongoing work in our offices or spend a day upgrading one of our buildings under the direction of our building maintenance team, these opportunities are also sometimes available. The holiday season is always a busy time and there is always something happening. Consider helping stuff and distribute food bags in November and December to our residents.
If you’re interested in any of the volunteer opportunities mentioned above, contact Julie Doherty at (415) 358-3965 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
