About

Opportunities throughout Orange County. Commnunity mentoring program involves sharing activites with a child that you both enjoy, right here in our community. You will get to enjoy these fun visits serveral times a month. We like to see our volunteers and children meet at least three times a month, according to your schedule and availability. We ask that volunteers be able to make at least a 1-year committment. Our school-based mentoring program involves meeting with a child right in a school for one hour per week. It is a chance to help a child succeed in school and in life. You make a child feel special where they are everyday - school. It might be the break in the hectic week you need, or a chance to recapture the moments of childhood. Growing up is tough, and some kids have it even tougher. But the consistent support of a caring adult friend in the life of a child has the power to help build brighter futures - less drugs and violence, greater academic success, and stronger communities for all. Being a mentor is not easy. It does not generate instant gratification - children develop and change slowly over time - but the rewards are truly deep, meaningful, and lasting. We seek volunteers of all kinds, especially men. Please contact us for more information!
