Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
New Beginnings Community Development Corporation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed in 2000, and located in Port Allen, Louisiana. The mission of New Beginnings is to cultivate social and economic development in West Baton Rouge Parish. Our goal is to improve the quality of life in our community by providing educational support, life skills training, and enrichment and growth opportunities for youth and their families.
The Project SOAR Mentoring Program is a collaboration between New Beginnings Community Development Center, the West Baton Rouge Parish School System, the City of Port Allen, West Baton Rouge Parish Goverment, local businesses and religious organizations. Collaborating partners are joining daily.
Project SOAR utilizes a broad developmental and research-based approach to mentoring that focuses on helping youth build their capacity to succeed in education and in life.
Project SOAR mentors come from every corner of the West Baton Rouge Community. They represent all ages, ethnicities, occupations, and faiths. We actively recruit volunteers from local businesses, religious institutions, colleges, retirement centers, and civic organizations.
The Project SOAR mentoring program is funded by a 3-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Our program is designed to recruit, screen, train, and match adult volunteers with elementary school children here in West Baton Rouge Parish. Project SOAR is a school-based mentoring program and all contact occurs at the school. The mentoring sessions are 1 hour per week for a (renewable) one-year period. Volunteers must pass a background check.
