Looking for Volunteers to Serve in Washington, DC and NYC
Youth Service Opportunities Project (YSOP) engages youth, college students and adults in meaningful service experiences through an innovative program that combines an orientation to the issues, hands on volunteer work and reflection. Using orientation and reflection to frame their service experiences, YSOP inspires our participants to broaden their perspectives and become engaged citizens.
YSOP is a Quaker organization, grounded in Quaker values of respect for each individual, simplicity and service. Our programs are non-sectarian. We welcome people of every faith and belief system, including people who don’t ascribe to any faith.
YSOP is a nationally recognized leader in providing high-quality volunteer service-learning experiences in metropolitan areas (currently New York City and Washington, DC). YSOP has been a pioneer in the field of service, leading thousands of youth and adults in service programs to encourage community participation and engaged citizenship through direct and indirect service to our society’s most vulnerable populations.
Each year, over 4,000 volunteers participate in our programs and serve more than 500,000 people experiencing homelessness and hunger.
