Description: Lost-n-Found Youth is an Atlanta-based nonprofit corporation whose mission is to take homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youths to age 26 off the street and transition them into more permanent housing.

Volunteers Requests by Lost N Found Youth: Lost-n-Found Youth exists as a mostly volunteer-run organization composed of a volunteer board and a steering committee of roughly a dozen others who give their time, energy, and money as needed to run the mission and operations of the organization, raise funds, and manage community relations. We ask for a six month commitment from all volunteers and provide volunteer orientation prior to welcoming new members of the community to help us with our mission. All volunteers must pay a $10 fee and pass a background check prior to starting work with Lost-n-Found Youth. Volunteer orientation meetings are conducted on the second Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. and the Saturday immediately after from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 2585 Chantilly Drive, Atlanta, GA, 30324. Check out Events for the next sessions.
