About

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 Prospect Park Family Center in Whitehall. 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 trainings taking place in September. We are looking for a commitment of at least one school year to volunteer in our program. Background checks will be conducted for all volunteers. Contact us today!
