There are a number of ways that you can make a difference for young people in our community.

Become a Mentor

Take the first step and learn more about how you can make a difference in the life (or lives) of one or more young people. Mentoring programs range from a one-on-one weekly commitment to a single youth to much more modest commitments of an hour or two a month together with other mentors with a small group of youth.  Find the mentoring approach that is right for you!
