Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for volunteers for our One-on-One Mentoring initiative through our NextGen Mentoring Program.

Volunteers need to want to help youth by being there for them, letting them know that someone cares about them, and won’t give up on them.

The youth involved are between 11-17 and want to be part of this program. They come for all different backgrounds and we make matches based on likes, dislikes and personalities.

An adult mentor is a powerful resource to motivate and inspire a young person as a living example of full adult participation in educational and vocational activities.

Education for our youth is increased by having an adult mentor in their lives. 

76% of at-risk youth who were mentored aspired to enroll and graduate from college compared to 56% of at-risk youth without an adult mentor.

45% of at-risk youth with a mentor are enrolled in some type of post-secondary education compared to 29% of at-risk youth without a mentor.

Being a mentor is an effective way to promote positive youth development including improved social, academic and behavioral outcomes.

Become A Mentor:

  • Be 18 years old or older
  • Submit to a background check
  • Commit to 4–6 hours per month
  • Contact youth weekly
  • Commit to one full year
  • Complete Mentor Training

Devoting your time and effort can make a change in one person’s life.

Help be the one who can improve our at-risk youth with their self-esteem, social anxiety, and quality of life over the course of a year.
