The Ruth Ellis Center has put out a call for volunteers – specifically, families looking to offer support, care and love to LGBTQ youth in need.
The center will be holding a training at its drop-in center at 1 p.m. Feb. 20 for interested parties. The center is located at 77 Victor Street in Highland Park.
The center asks that those interested, be they individuals or families, be willing and able to commit at least four hours a month to spend time with and serve as role models for the center’s youth. Participants must value teamwork, be able to make a long-term commitment to youth, accept the youth as who they are and demonstrate maturity, responsibility and caring.
