Volunteer

Volunteering for Just Say YES gives you the unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students within your community.

Whether it’s collecting donation items for student retreats, joining our event committee to help plan fundraising events, or stamping and sealing letters for mailers, we have multiple volunteer opportunities designed to fit your schedule and spirit to serve. Look at our volunteer opportunities below to see which option best matches your passion, skills and interests.

Host Donation Drives

Collecting items for our students to attend the MentorLife Retreat or STARS National Conference, or stuffing “swag bags” for Mentor Graduation are great ways to get involved! We are always in need of items (and hands!) to create these special packages. Visit here to see what items we currently need!

Serve as an Event Committee Member

We always appreciate individuals who have a heart to volunteer their time and talents for a great cause. Our Event Committee needs you! If you are interested in supporting our team with fundraising events such as our Annual Celebration, North Texas Giving Day and October Golf Tournament, please contact our Director of Development today at events@justsayyes.org or call us at 888-579-5790.

Write Letter of Encouragement to Student Mentors

So many students today feel isolated; they feel alone and disconnected from family members, peers and teachers. MentorLife is a concept we teach in the Just Say YES Peer-to-Peer Mentoring program, which means students always have someone investing in them, and in turn, they invest in others. Help us inspire our students to continue to DREAM BIG by writing them encouragement letters. These letters get passed out at the Mentor Graduation each May to send off our seniors into the next chapter of their lives.

Support Mass Mailers

As a nonprofit organization, we are regularly reaching out to our donors to let them know of upcoming events, fundraising campaigns, updates on our students and programs, current needs, etc. To keep costs low, we assemble all of our mailers in-house. Whether it is one hour or multiple hours, we could always use the support of stuffing, stamping and sealing envelopes!
