If you're a current high school student who's interested in helping younger K-8th grade students in the classroom, develop your leadership skills and give back to the community then the Koreatown Youth and Community Center (KYCC) is looking for you! KYCC's Bridge program is led by a group of passionate high school student volunteers who tutor and mentor our younger students in our afterschool programs.Research has shown that every child is just one caring person away from being a success story. KYCC's youth programs serve 500 children a year, so your time and energy can mean that one more child will have a better chance in life with just a few hours a week. We've found that our volunteers get just as much, if not more out of building this relationship with kids who would thrive with just a little more attention. At the same time, you learn to grow as a person, leader and volunteer - our Bridge program offers opportunities for student volunteers to learn how to run a volunteer program through hands-on work.The Koreatown Youth and Community Center was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. Most of the clients served are first generation immigrants from Asia and Latin America. Committed to serving the diverse population of Koreatown, we offer all programs in Spanish, Korean and English.Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities Tutoring along with student/classroom supervision.

    Breakfast Program 7a-9a for

    St. Francis Center
    1835 S Hope St, Los Angeles, CA 90015

    Our breakfast service is a volunteer favorite. While volunteering during our Breakfast Program, volunteers gain firsthand experience of what our unhoused community members face every day - hunger and other sensitive issues. Becoming a SFC volunteer can also mean a chance to build relationships with our unhoused guests, staff, and fellow volunteers. It’s an opportunity to take a moment to reflect on current community issues and a chance to help SFC in our mission to serve hope.During the pandemic, we modified our programs in a to-go distribution format. As of June 7 we plan to resume our indoor dining service but still offer the to-go breakfast option.Our Breakfast Program schedule is as follows:Monday: 7:00 am to 8:30 amOn Mondays, our Breakfast Program will remain a to-go distribution format. During these days, volunteers can expect to help prepare hot coffee and the to-go breakfast plates. Volunteers, who feel comfortable to do so, can also help distribute the prepared foods at our front door along with one of our staff members. Volunteers can expect a smaller group of fellow volunteers on these days.More details about the experience will be shared with you via a welcoming email.Tuesday-Friday: 7:00 am to 9:00 amDuring Tuesday to Friday, we host our indoor dining service. The dining service will take place indoors - inside the center. Volunteers can expect a larger group of fellow volunteers on these days and a chance to fill any one of the roles below:
    • Hosts – With the help of a staff member, volunteers will help control the flow of our unhoused guests during dining service. They help with sitting guests who wish to dine in with us or provide to-go breakfast plates. However, their main priority will be to hand off our to-go breakfast plates.
    • Table Captains – One volunteer is stationed at one or two tables. The volunteer in this role will help keep the table organized during our dining service. This role is the most sought out by all volunteers as it provides a good opportunity for conversation with our guests.
    • Coffee attendants – Volunteers help prepare cups of coffee and provide refills when needed.
    • Kitchen Helpers – These volunteers will help in the kitchen by prepping the breakfast plates for both the indoor dining guests and for our to-go guests.
