Offer welcome and support to a newly resettled refugee teen!
The Refugee Youth Mentoring Program pairs a volunteer with a refugee child age 12-17 in one-on-one, "big brother/big sister" relationships. Mentors and mentees then meet weekly in the child's home or in the community and spend time together working on homework, exploring the city, or trying new things.
Most of the refugee families we serve live in Clarkston, Tucker, or Decatur. Volunteer mentors commit to meeting with their mentee for at least two hours per week for one year.
Mentors must be 21+ years old; willing to complete an application, background checks (~$51 fingerprint fee), and training (8 hours); meet agency auto insurance requirements as applicable ; and willing to meet with mentee weekly for one year, usually in or near Clarkston, GA.
