Covenant House Georgia is in search of talented individuals who are willing to give their time to support Atlanta’s homeless youth. Individuals volunteer in a number of capacities, from providing support in our administrative offices, to tutoring and mentoring our youth, to joining our street outreach team in the toughest neighborhoods in Atlanta in search of homeless and runaway teens. Volunteers who work directly with our youth must pass a background check process.
