About

Do you like to have fun, meet new people, and help others? Become a volunteer at SA Youth and make a difference!

Volunteers work with school age youth in small groups throughout the week. Our children arrive at our centers after school. They have a snack and get started on their homework before activities begin. A volunteer is asked to be at the center when the kids arrive from school, to quickly help them with their homework and assist with activities. Volunteers can request to work with a certain age group. Volunteers are asked to work with the same group(s) of students at least once a week.

Volunteer opportunities include:

1. Homework assistant

2. Computer lab tutor

3. Coach

4. Art instructor

5. Mentors for our YouthBuild Program

Role of our volunteers:

· Providing academic help and tutoring

· Providing career exploration assistance

· Providing emotional support

· Providing social experiences

In YouthBuild, our students are here to get their GED. Most of them don't have anyone to encourage them and keep them on the right track so that’s where YOU come in. Being a YouthBuild mentor is a deeply rewarding experience. You will provide support at a critical point in a young person’s life. YouthBuild students are doing great work in the classroom, training for the jobs of the future, and learning how to be quality citizens and community leaders. But the missing ingredient in all this might be your support, wisdom, and caring soul.

A Mentor will commit to spending a minimum of 4 hours each month with their youth. Activities will be scheduled Monthly by the Volunteer Coordinator.
