Guest Chef Program

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.

Read the Guest Chef Overview here and the Nutrition Ideas for dinner and breakfast here.


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

Summer Session Dates: June 13th, June 21, June 29. July 3, July 11, July 19, July 27, August 7, August 8 - Volunteers do not have a required session commitment for summer sessions. 

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.
