Help refugee youth navigate their new communities as a mentor! Mentors will help their mentees with professional development, academic guidance, and civic engagement.
The MYVA program liaisons pair volunteers with one of our clients to work on school and civic-minded projects more intensively and build a personal relationship while helping refugees between the ages of 15 and 24 years of age achieve their goals! It addresses youth's social, community, educational, and vocational goals. You will transform a young person's life and build relationships that will last. We prefer a six-month commitment. This program covers multiple locations across the Diocese. Our sites cover; Arlington, Manassas, Woodbridge, and Fredericksburg areas.
