The Youth Mentoring network partners with several different Charlottesville organizations to provide volunteers and young students alike a meaningful and enriching mentoring experience. UVA mentors will have the opportunity to work with students to develop a variety of skills in areas such as music, sports, technology, science, and after school math and reading enrichment.



What will volunteers do?

Each site provides a unique volunteering environment and will focus on different aspects of youth development. However, the overall objective of each site is to form purposeful relationships between students and mentors and to engage the students in academic and extracurricular activities that will help them to build a foundation for their future.



Most volunteer shifts last between 1 and 2 hours, but this may vary from site to site. Transportation is provided via carpools.
