CALICO YOUTH SERVICES

BECOME AN ALLY, ADVOCATE, MENTOR FOR YOUTH
Be a mentor, role model, and friend for a middle school student in the Bay Area through
CaLiCo Youth Services!
We are CaLiCo Youth Services, a nonprofit organization that works with middle school
students from the Redwood City School District (in the San Francisco Bay Area), East Palo
Alto, and Menlo Park. We provide mentorship to our students. We have a network of caring
mentors that our students can rely on throughout their school experience, and beyond. We
can’t do it without volunteers like you!
We are looking for members of the community who may have worked for some time,
perhaps have children of their own, and are looking to give back.
If you can commit to:
● Meeting with a "pod" of two students and their two "junior" buddy mentors once a
week, throughout the 2020-21 academic year,
● Serving as a backup for the "junior" mentors, for when they are unable to make a
one on one meeting with their student
● Attending a larger community get together for an hour on Sunday afternoons
and are located in the San Francisco Bay Area, then we want you! Note that all meetings are
in the afternoons or evenings, and are no more than one hour in duration, all online.
You can find more information at www.calicoyouth.org/volunteer . Please feel free to share
this with anyone who may be interested!
