The Y-NOW Mentoring Program is a 10 month mentoring program for youth ages 11-15 with a parent incarcerated. The program aims to teach youth life skills that they can use to break the cycle of incarceration seen by many of their families. We are proud to say that after 15 years of classes, 90% of the program's graduates have remained out of the criminal justice system. We need volunteers to help run this program.

Departure Volunteers work as a team to create a safe environment and set the tone for the 3-day retreat and 10 month follow-through program. This requires volunteers to perform a variety of tasks including: performing clothing and luggage searches upon youths' arrival to Safe Place Services, assisting youth to and from check-in stations, collecting and documenting prescription medications, loading luggage onto the van , and communicating with youth in such a manner that makes them feel comfortable, safe, and acknowledged.

Y-NOW has other volunteer oppotunities! if interested in learning more please email Tory (tportale@ymcalouisville.org)
