Youth Mentoring works with several different organizations within the area to provide volunteers that teach young students a variety of different skills while serving as mentor and role model. Each of the sites has a distinct way in which the volunteer is meant to connect with the student. These activities include tutoring, playing chess, teaching computer skills, teaching one how to play an instrument, and interacting with exhibits at the locally-run children’s museum!
What will volunteers do?
Each site requires something different of the volunteer, but the objective is the same. The volunteer will work with children, ages ranging from elementary to high school, on a specific area of interest, serving as both a teacher and a mentor.
Most shifts run for about 1-2 hours, but may vary according to site. Transportation is provided via carpool.
