The Lake County Youth Mentorship Program matches youth ages 9-12 with volunteer mentors who can serve as positive role models, introduce youth to new experiences, and provide support and encouragement during difficult times. Due to COVID-19, meetings will primarily happen online. In-person meetings will be allowed when deemed safe by public health officials. Mentors are required to meet with their mentee on a weekly basis for at least 1 hour per week for a full calendar year. Being a mentor allows volunteers to make a positive impact in fun and creative ways! You can start by attending one of our virtual open houses to learn more about our program or by requesting a meeting with the coordinator. Press "I want to help" and let us know!
Volunteer Mentors must must live in Lake County or Cook County, IL, pass a thorough background check, complete the volunteer application and all required training modules. Our staff is here to support you every step of the way, so mentors must maintain contact with the Program Coordinator during the length of their volunteer service.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
