Volunteers create the backbone of Bayshore Christian Ministries and fuel the success of its mission for youth from East Palo Alto and Belle Haven. In a highly-relational environment, hundreds of volunteers every year provide spiritual and academic support to young people, as well as take pictures, serve as board members and donate meals for programs. Check out opportunities below, and join us in helping students gain hope and a future.

We spread the love of God in all sorts of ways, whether it is by teaching the Bible, providing food or supporting families through difficult times like COVID. I have loved being part of BCM for 6 years and can’t wait for many more to come!
