Bruin Shelter – Volunteers & Supervisors

April 25th, 2017

Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Apr 25, 2017
Last Day: May 17, 2017

Bruin Shelter is the third student-run, student-initiated homeless shelter in the nation, the first homeless shelter for homeless college students, and the only youth homeless shelter on the Westside. Using donations, grants, and support from community partners, the Shelter provides up to 10 homeless college students with overnight housing and food for six months, while helping them transition into permanent housing. During their stay, volunteers strive to create a safe and supportive space for residents, where they take agency in shaping the space to fit their needs and desires. Bruin Shelter provides a family, one that our residents can always rely on whenever they need.

The Shelter is seeking general volunteers and supervisors. Applications are due May 17 at 5 pm.


As a volunteer, you will be tasked with running dinner shifts (from about 7:00-10:30 PM) at the shelter roughly three times a month. This entails making dinner for the residents and staff, sharing a meal together, packing breakfast bags for the resident, and appropriate clean up. If you like cooking and socializing, this is the position for you! APPLY >>


As a supervisor, you will be tasked with running overnight shifts at the shelter about twice a month. This entails being present at the shelter from 7:00 PM – 7:00 AM where you will be monitoring the shelter to make sure everything is safe. You will be working with a partner each night so you won’t need to stay awake the entire night. More details about the job description can be found here: under “What are the detail of each shift?” APPLY >>
