Volunteer Spotlight


Charlotte is a positive, thoughtful, and reliable 13-year old who has become an awesome addition to UAY’s volunteer team! Charlotte provides fun, loving childcare to babies and toddlers while their young parents attend a weekly support group.

Q: What is your favorite part of volunteering at UAY?

A: “The kids are really funny and are fun to hang out with! They do a great job at lifting my mood, especially if I’m having a tough day. They are cool people; cool, “little people!””


Q: What made you decide to volunteer at UAY?

A: “My mom came to UAY when she was pregnant with my brother; also, I went to the Youth Summit over the summer – so I found out about volunteering there. Also, I know from my friends that UAY is a cool, chill place to be, and I’ve heard that people at UAY are accepting and understanding - so I thought it would be a good place for me to spend my time.”
