Parachutes is a drop-in center for youth ages 13-18 that has various activities such as video games, computers, a pool table, a small cafe, special events, and most importantly caring adult volunteers who want to share their lives with teens. The common thread for the diverse group of youth we serve is that they have an unstable or unhealthy home environment. Activities at Parachutes are motivated by a love for Jesus Christ and are rooted in community building. In addition to providing a safe, social space and refuge for teens, life at Parachutes also means meeting teens where they are at in other areas of their lives. We provide space for youth to explore and access services and opportunities in-house and other youth serving agencies. There are various ways to serve including developing relationships with youth and helping maintain a safe space in our drop-in center, joining our outreach team, or assisting the organization with administrative tasks. Part-time and full-time. Parachutes Teen Club and Resource Center
