We rely on volunteer mentors and tutors to help to provide the best programming possible for kids.  In order to deliver high-interest, quality programs for our members, we look for supportive people willing to work with kids in the areas of:

Character & Leadership Development:  Our 6 to 8 member leadership groups plan service projects, and focus on issues they want to change in the community.  Connecting with interested community members boosts their confidence in as they engage in service opportunities.

Education & Career Development:  Can you host a group of 8 at your place of business for a tour? Would you share your professional story with a group of curious teens?  Could you come once a week to provide homework support?  Our kids could use you!

Health & Life Skills: Help kids learn about developing positive habits through good decision-making.

The Arts:  Do you dance, paint, collage or sculpt?  There are so many regular artistic opportunities to help out!

Sports, Fitness & Recreation:  Love sports and fitness?  We need your expertise as a coach, clinician, or fitness mentor.

While many of our programs are led by staff members with volunteer support, we are equally proud of our volunteer-led programs which are supported by staff. Examples of volunteer-led programs include Cooking at Cherry Avenue, Forest Discoveries at Southwood, Gardening in Madison, and Sailing in Orange.
