A YES youth with his mentor

About

When you were a kid, did you have a trusted adult in your life other than your parents? Did you have someone you could count on to encourage you, offer a little guidance, take you to a game, bake cookies with you, listen to you, show up? We have a wait list of kids who want someone like that.

Youth Engagement Services (YES) Mentoring is a program of Catholic Charities Tompkins/Tioga. We are looking for committed volunteers who want to be important in the life of a child. Youth in our program are age 9-17 and reside in Tioga County, NY. If you are at least 18 years old, can pass a background check, have a reliable vehicle, and want to bake cookies, ride bikes, go to a ballgame, garden, hike, or just hang out with a kid, contact us today!
