We believe in empowering youth for the greater good. They have the ability to change the world beginning in missions like ending childhood hunger and homelessness in the school where they go or to their local communities where they live. As LindaBen (LB) Youth Volunteers, they will become part of a solution in ending hunger and poverty in our local communities. They will take part in advancing sustainable programs that help reduce food waste and restore balance both in land and marine stocks.
Our LB Youth Volunteer positions are wide ranging; you may work in food rescue, help lead community pantries, be a language liaison, branding and marketing through social media, enhance youth engagement or many other areas. In return, our hope is to provide our youth volunteers with plenty of hands-on opportunities to lead, to be able give back, and be rewarded with an experience that will be remembered for the rest of their adult life.
In just a short period of time, we have gathered 30 youth volunteers (40% of our volunteer workforce) to help us with our summer programs and beyond.
