Youth Volunteer Opportunities
There are several ways for the youth in our community to become involved with FISH based on age and time commitment ability.

Just emails and opportunities.
High School Youth Advisory Board (YAB)
Our Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is open to all high school students (9th-12th grades) in Broomfield. It is a working board that focuses on raising awareness, volunteering, and fundraising for FISH. Students have a monthly 90 minute meeting that involves planning for events that they participate in such as food drives, work sessions in the food room, and various community functions.
The YAB board term is April to February and is currently closed. We will be accepting applications February 1st - March 15th. Current 8th graders CAN apply. Click here for more information about YAB.
One of our biggest needs is donations to keep our marketplace shelves filled. Last year FISH provided over 1.1 million pounds of food to our clients. Here are ways that your family can make a difference.
Adopt a Shelf
FISH is seeking families to adopt a shelf of food/personal care items and refill it once a month. When you drop off items your family can stock the shelf you have adopted.
Family Volunteer Opportunites
At Home Projects
A great way to give back as a family is to do a project at home. This gives you the flexibility of working when it's it's convenient for your family. Our current project is:
Court Ordered Community Service

Volunteer of the Spotlight:
This month FISH would like to feature Destiny Thompson, who started volunteering in our marketplace and warehouse in 2013! Destiny knows how to keep busy on Tuesday mornings and can often be found sorting donations, stocking shelves and keeping Mike Lutz, our Food Operations Manager, on his toes. She also helps families carry groceries to their car, no matter the weather! We appreciate Destiny's dedication, teamwork, and sense of humor as a longtime FISH volunteer!
