Are you looking for a long-term and meaningful volunteer opportunity? Volunteer with Bridge Refugee Services and become a youth mentor!

Help newcomer youths in the Chattanooga community work towards their educational, vocational, and personal goals. Volunteer mentors will be paired with a youth between the ages of 15 and 24. Each volunteer will work with their mentee for a period of 6 months, meeting for 4 hours every month, to help them accomplish their goals and better integrate into the Chattanooga community. Our mentoring program is a long-term opportunity where volunteers can make a profound impact on a young person’s life, form a meaningful relationship, and learn more about the resettlement process.

Requirements:

  • 21 years or older
  • Complete volunteer orientation (1.5 hours), background check, mentor interview, and mentor program training (2 hours)
  • Meet with mentee for 4 hours a month for a 6 month period
  • Submit weekly online reports

  • Attend optional monthly mentor meet-ups and quarterly group events
