Three Ways To Get Involved


Volunteer with Y2Y!

Y2Y Harvard Square is entirely operated by volunteers. We need 120+ volunteers each week to ensure our overnight program operates smoothly. Apply to be a weekly volunteer or sign up for an ad hoc volunteer shift! The spring semester weekly volunteer application is open now with a priority deadline of February 1. Students and community members alike are welcome to apply.

Check out the volunteer calendar below to sign up for an ad hoc volunteer shift! Feel free to reach out to the Volunteer Director at with questions.
