The White Plains Youth Bureau's Young MENtoring Program is a group mentoring program for boys in 7th grade through 12th grade. We are getting ready to start our 5th year. The group meets at the White Plains Youth Bureau on Tuesday nights from 6 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. From 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. we have a simple dinner together and then have some type of activity or group discussion. Shortly after 7 p.m. we head over to our gym where mentors and mentees play sports together. It's usually a group activity and they change weekly depending on what the group wants to do. We also review grades with the students and try to keep them motivated and hold them accountable for making improvements. The group goes on a variety of trips that are free to all participants. This group is a lot of fun and that makes the kids keep wanting to return!
We are looking for young male mentors/role models between the ages of 19 and 40 to volunteer on Tuesday nights. We typically meet 3 Tuesdays out of the month and we follow the school schedule. We don't meet when there's no school. It ends up being roughly 23 meetings through the school year.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
