Virtual Mentorship Opportunity with My Brother's Keeper
Volunteers for Community Impact
Volunteers for Community Impact (VCI) needs your help in building safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity. We are focused on recruiting volunteers, community stakeholders, and other supporters to assist us in improving the lives of boys and young men of color. MBK’s work is rooted in six key life milestones that research shows are especially predictive of later success, and where interventions can have the greatest impact.
- Getting a healthy start and entering school ready to learn
- Reading at grade level by third-grade
- Graduating from high school, ready for college, or a career
- Completing post-secondary education or career training programs
- Successfully entering the workforce
- Keeping kids on track and giving them second chances
Mentors will meet with young men of color, virtually, during their school day. Hours are flexible, but one hour a day is required.
*Due to COVID-19, all mentorship opportunities are virtual at this time.*

Our mission: "Improving Lives Through Volunteerism."
We are the leading organization for senior volunteerism in the greater Central Florida area, serving Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties. Just last year, 1,186 caring adult volunteers gave 438,683 hours of service. That is more than $9.5 million dollars worth of volunteer service being poured back into our communities.
Previously known as Florida Senior Programs, VCI has been the sponsoring agency for the REtired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and Foster Grandparent Programs since 1977. Our 36 year presence has proven our aptitude for providing meaningful and impactful volunteer experiences.
VCI provides membership benefits and support to volunteers aged 55+, at no cost to the volunteers or their volunteer stations. Just a few of the benefits of membership include: Supplemental insurance while volunteering, a dedicated coordinator, and matching to find the perfect position to fit the interest of the volunteer.
