Catholic Charities encourages everyone to join us in serving our community regardless of their religion, race, color, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, age, disability, or marital status. Catholic Charities’ volunteers serve the community without a religious or political agenda.

The Young Adult Mentor Program matches refugee youth ages 15-24 with mentors in the community to empower the youth in achieving their educational and employment goals. As a Mentor, volunteers will act as an advocate and support for a young refugee. This program exists to empower youth through one-on-one support. Mentors help youth achieve specific academic, professional, and social goals. These goals can include, but are not limited to, high school completion, college readiness, career planning, or closeness with a mentor. This program is a unique opportunity to provide much-needed stability, support, cultural instruction, and empowerment, all of which are vital for future self-sufficiency and productive citizenship.

Note: This is a virtual/in-person volunteer opportunity provided by Catholic Charities of Tennessee. Volunteers must be located n the state of Tennessee to participate.

The tasks and responsibilities of this role include:

  • Committing to build a supportive relationship with a refugee youth
  • Attending and actively participating in mentor orientation and pre-match training
  • Meeting with the mentee virtually at least once weekly to provide community, support, and educational or professional guidance
  • Completing and submitting monthly activity logs
  • Regularly communicating with the Refugee Youth Mentor Program Coordinator to check-in and follow up
