Fun with our mentors

Become a youth mentor for multicultural teens living in the Baldwin/Whitehall area of Pittsburgh! South Hills Interfaith Movement's Youth Mentoring Program is focused on students 11-18 years old and is held weekly at the SHIM Family Center in Whitehall with a once a week commintment from 6pm to 8pm. We work with families who moved to the US from refugee camps in Burma/Thailand, Bhutan/ Nepal, and various African countries. We are currently looking for responsible, reliable, and fun volunteer mentors to work weekly with all of our groups, which are divided by age and gender. Each group meets one evening per week, Monday through Thursday. Experience with teens and/or multicultural settings is a plus but not required. Mentors generally work in pairs with support from staff to plan and implement fun activities as well as guide discussion centered on making positive choices, building skills at home and in school, and planning for college and future careers. Weekly meetings with the students run October through June with introductory training taking place in September. We are looking for a commitment of at least one school year to volunteer in our program. Clearances Including National Sex Offender and Mandated reporter training will be required for all volunteers. Contact us today!

Mission Statement

SHIM’s mission as an interfaith organization is to empower struggling families to achieve self-sufficiency.

Description

South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM) is a human services organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in need across the South Hills. This includes working to reduce the devastating effects of suburban poverty among the working poor, unemployed, families, single parents, senior citizens, women, and the high concentration of refugee families in its service area. SHIM works to identify the most critical needs across the South Hills, then develops and implements effective solutions. SHIM aims to empower individuals and families to achieve stability and self-sufficiency by offering short-term help with basic needs (food, clothing, utilities) and longer-term support (employment, financial planning, youth programs, family support) to help people build and sustain promising futures.
