Brownsville Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Mentors

At Good Samaritan, we want to set the best example for our students. Mentoring provides them with a positive adult role model in their life. Through a program that focuses on the 40 Developmental Assets set by the Search Institute, we target areas where our students might need some extra attention. Students that show signs of risk are paired with a mentor. By engaging with our students, our mentors will provide a demonstration of these assets, like integrity and goal setting. Mentors must be at least 18 years of age and obtain a GED or high school diploma.
