LifeTies Launches New Volunteer Program

We need you! BECOME A MENTOR AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the life of youth in need!
There are vulnerable and at-risk youth in our community who must overcome the effects of abuse, neglect, homelessness, chronic illnesses, and more. By introducing youth to new experiences and sharing positive values, mentors can help young people avoid negative behaviors and achieve success. Youth with mentors have increased likelihood of going to college, better attitudes toward school, increased social and emotional development, and improved self-esteem.

Mentors engage in building caring, nurturing relationships with individual youth to help develop character, social skills, career interests, and educational choices. Mentors who are at least 21 and pass all background checks must commit to at least 4 hours a month for 1 year. Training and ongoing support will be provided.

A number of youth have requested a male mentor and this is a need we hope you can help us fill!

LifeTies has a 40 year legacy of serving special populations of youth who have experienced complex trauma and have additional layers of challenges. We work with youth who:
- identify as LGBTQ+
- are pregnant and parenting
- are homeless
- are involved in the juvenile justice system
- are chronically absent from school
- have behavioral health and/or mental health challenges
- have experienced abuse or neglect
- are involved with the child welfare system

Our programs include two group homes (Triad House and Rainbow House)serving youth with behavioral health challenges, supportive housing for homeless youth and young adults and a mentoring program for at-risk youth in Mercer County that are involved with the juvenile justice system, are chronically absent or are questioning or who identify as LGBTQ+.
