We need volunteers

These are strange times. These are hard times. More than ever, we could all use a little hope. More than ever, we need volunteers.

You see, families that have needed our help need it now more than ever. With you onboard, we have the power to change the courses of young people’s lives across our community, during the pandemic and beyond. Together, we can ignite the hope that we all need right now.

Dedicating your time to the life of a youth makes an impact that goes far beyond the Zoom calls, video game battles or tutoring sessions. Explore how you can get involved and watch our community change, one life at a time.

Why mentor?

Mentoring gives you the opportunity to connect with a young person to inspire positive progress.
Spending time with a young person can be as simple as going for a walk, grabbing a coffee, or seeing a movie – you can support a young person today just by being you!

We are looking for mentors who:

  • have a diverse background of lived experiences
  • represent any culture, sexual orientation, gender or gender expression
  • are passionate about supporting a young person!

No specific skills needed, just your time and passion to ignite potential.

We value diversity and are experts in matching youth with mentors based on shared experience and interests.
