Volunteer:

We strongly believe in the valuable role that volunteers play in transforming the lives of our members. As little as one hour per week is all it takes to have a positive impact on a teen’s life. We offer volunteer opportunities for adults to work directly with youth as mentors and tutors, and by providing career guidance, internships and college preparation support.
