About Us

YSOP is a Quaker based non-profit organization, founded in 1983, that gives middle school, high school and college students episodic opportunities to help people in need through volunteer service. YSOP offers day-long, weekend and week-long service programs. YSOP programs combine hands-on service with education on current issues and reflection on the service experience. YSOP provides volunteers to service agencies helping homeless and hungry people throughout New York City and Washington D.C. These agencies include soup kitchens, food, furniture and clothing banks, drop-in centers and recreational programs for children living in family shelters. Last year over 3,400 YSOP program participants provided vital services to more than 360,000 people in need. With a particular focus on the significance of educating volunteers on the issues and encouraging reflection, YSOP works to inspire youth to see the value of service learning and their ability to create change.

YSOP offers part-time and full-time employment opportunities in Washington, D.C. and NYC. Visit or contact Lisa Gesson at for more information on how to apply and join the YSOP team.
