Seeking Youth Advocates for all shifts at our 24/7 youth shelters

“Working as a Youth Advocate at Jackson Street Youth Services is ideal for me as a college student. With classes and other responsibilities during the week, working on the weekend is perfect. Not only can I work a job that more than pays the bills but one that I know also helps a population in need.

With supportive coworkers and supervisors, getting time off to take care of other things is easy. I could not have asked for a better opportunity than the one offered to me by Jackson Street.” —Current staff member
