Why Power Partner? Why not volunteer? Simply put - you are more than a volunteer. When you donate your valuable time or talent to the City Center you are deciding to partner with us to tackle many of the challenges our youth face each day. If you are interested in joining our vision of keeping local teens off the street, consider partnering with us today!

Our application process is designed for both individuals and groups.
