About Volunteer at the Depot!

The Depot Jordan Valley Teen Center is a Faith-Based Teen Center located downtown East Jordan. Our mission is to provide these teens with a safe place to be and a path to become the best version of themselves. To do this, we are constantly looking for ways to provide teens with new experiences and access to opportunities they may not have had access to otherwise. We also look to provide these teens with Mentor relationships that will help be a positive force in their life.

One of the major points of our mission has been to attack childhood hunger by providing the teens with a free homecooked meal by a professional caterer every week. This has had an enormous impact on our kids as they are brought wonderful filling meals every week by Jeni Willingham-Private Chef and Catering. This is all part of our Health and Wellness Initiative and it's been a beautiful part of the Depot.

The Depot is 99% volunteer run and operated.

Without our volunteers, we cannot provide the programming and opportunities we would like to extend to the teens. It also hampers us from doing little more than just being open for the kids to hang and eat pizza.

That's where you come in!

We are looking for volunteers of all age groups over 18 years old who would like to be a part of making a difference in this community. Even though we are a faith-based organization, you do not need to be affiliated with a church. We just want people who are willing to be a positive influence on a kids life and lead by example. We are looking for adults who are willing to engage with the teens, play basketball with them, do crafts, gardening, video games or board games. There is no limit to the skills we would like to bring into the Depot!

If you're willing to share your life experience and engage with teenagers on their level, WE WANT YOU.

Please fill out the registration and download the application! We will be in touch with you shortly! Thank you again for signing up and joining us as we work towards changing the lives of the teens in this community!
