Virtual Volunteer Opportunities


Mentoring is a great way for youth to have positive role models, which can lead to better school performance, youth empowerment and healthier life choices. It is thanks to mentors like you that we are able to change lives! As a mentor you will also benefit from personal fulfillment and improved understanding of children. Mentoring does require commitment of twice a month for an hour.

For the month of February and March 2021, we will be hosting virtual mentoring sessions. We will plan for in person mentoring sessions in the near future. Below is a chart of times and days of the week that mentoring will take place.
