Rules, Regulations, and Guidelines

With the assistance of work provided to Reno The Youth Organization, we are able to provide the youth that stay with us an opportunity to have a bed to sleep in and a warm meal to fill themselves up with for the evening. We also allow the youth the opportunity to volunteer their time and in return give them the opportunity to build themselves new skills to apply to future job opportunities they may encounter.
Reno The Youth opens their doors at 6pm and closes at 9pm daily for youth intake. The program is on a first come first serve basis and spaces are limited, therefore, youth are encouraged to arrive early to ensure they are able to get a spot. 

We request that the youth which stay at our facility are not in possession of any illegal substances as well as not under the influence of any substances during their time here. 

Any violations of these rules are subject to rejection and will not be allowed to participate in the program.
