  • Refugee youth mentor

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Refugee Youth Mentor (Maryland & Virginia): Volunteers are paired with refugee youth (ages 16-24 in MD; 15-24 in VA) to assist with career development and empowerment. Duties vary based on the goals and interests of the youth, but tend to focus on exploring career and educational opportunities, identifying career pathways, assisting with the job search and application process (resumé, cover letter, application, interview), and setting short and long term goals. The goal of the mentorship is to allow the youth to have a mentor that can help navigate US systems, promote civic engagement and leadership opportunities, and provide guidance with various questions and ideas as they begin thinking about future careers or education. Mentors play an integral role in showing mentees the vast array of opportunities that may be available to them in the US, as well as supporting and empowering them to explore these opportunities. Mentoring is virtual now due to COVID and volunteers need to have regular contact with the youth client, ideally once a week or at least once every two weeks. Volunteers are part of the LSSNCA Youth Mentoring Community where there are opportunities for monthly training and development meetings, as well as outside presentations in relevant areas of interest to youth clients. The duration of the mentoring relationship is typically between six months to one year. Please note: We are located in the Washington, DC Metro area, including Maryland and Northern Virginia.

    Newcomer students are being hit hard during COVID. With schools closed and all instruction online they don't have nearly the opportunities they normally have to practice their English speaking skills.

We are looking for volunteers who can meet with a newcomer student virtually, one hour a week, to "just chat". You don't need to be bilingual. We'll train you so you know how to direct your conversations and make an easy connection with your student. Initial matches will be with upper-division Mission High School newcomer students but in time we are hoping to expand the program to other schools and other grade levels.
