MENTORS FOR SUCCESS
2018 Mentors for Success Info Sheet
2018 Mentors for Success Application
- A high impact volunteer experience that provides an opportunity for adults to develop a positive relationship with an at-risk youth. The program is designed to offer support and guidance as youth grow socially, emotionally, physically and academically. Mentors offer support by listening, giving advice, helping with school work and serving as a positive role model. These relationships are built on trust and understanding and provide youth with a sense of belonging, usefulness, power, and influence.
Other volunteer opportunities may include:
- Game room and gym activities:
Billiards, foosball, ping pong, board games, basketball, soccer, playground—adults are needed to help teach sportsmanship, skills and create fun for youth. Adult volunteers serve as positive role models providing one-on-one interaction with our Kids, an essential building block for healthy youth development.
Education Center and Computers
Homework assistance, tutoring, storytelling, word processing, Web design, Internet research, tech support, supervision, programming—parents are challenged to find time in their busy day to help their child with homework. Our Kids come to our Clubs looking for assistance and attention. We need volunteers to give each student the attention they deserve.
Flag football, softball, T-ball, basketball, swimming—coaching takes a special person who cares about youth and who can model teamwork, sportsmanship and the joy of being involved in a positive, healthy activity.
Cooking, art, dance, magic, gardening, environmental education—each of us has a special passion. Whether it’s kites, cupcakes, model airplanes, or growing award winning vegetables—one-time demonstrations or weekly classes—you choose the topic and the format! Don’t be shy, your hobby might be just what some child needs to inspire him or her.
Construction, painting, cleaning, landscaping, vehicle repair—each day, hundreds of kids pass through our doors. Our equipment and facilities show the wear and tear of active kids. If you have a skill or an interest in this area, your help can save the Club dollars better spent on providing activities for youth. Together we can create a safer environment that we can all be proud of!
We are always in need of administrative skills—light bookkeeping, filing, development assistance, scheduling, typing, reception, photo copying, supply orders.
