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.
