Guest Chef| E3: Engage, Enrich, Empower | Other Volunteer Opportunities | Corporate Opportunities

Every night, volunteers prepare and serve hot meals for homeless families and adults in our Emergency Housing program. These “Guest Chefs” give of their time and energy, generously donating food and doling out a great deal of compassion with each plate.

 Ascencia’s E3 volunteer program is designed to engage homeless youth and volunteers through enriching activities that foster personal empowerment.
Fall Dates: TBD

If you are interested you must apply and attend a mandatory orientation.  Applications are below.
E3 gives students with community service hour requirements a structured opportunity to schedule meaningful volunteer hours for the duration of a semester. Semester dates will align with Glendale Unified School District semester dates. Ascencia will track participation and issue milestone certificates of completion.                                                                                                                                                                       

Adult volunteers can apply to be
activity leaders and apply to help facilitate the activity.
Volunteer youth will be participating with
shelter youth in different weekly activities lead by volunteer activity leaders.
