Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Uncommon Good is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and to ending the cycle of poverty for low income, at risk children and youth.
The Connect to College Mentoring Program focuses on breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty for low income, at risk youth living in the Inland Valley. Numerous studies have shown that the single most powerful intervention that can be introduced into the life of a child at risk is an adult mentor. Uncommon Good volunteer mentors are recruited to share their knowledge, skills and resources with children and teens living in poverty. The volunteer becomes that special adult who provides guidance and encouragement for a young person to stay in school, make healthy lifestyle decisions and advance to college. Uncommon Good supports the one-on-one relationship with tutoring and social services to stabilize the child's family.
