The Circle Sentencing and The Mentoring Program are always looking for more volunteers. Currently, volunteers meet with youth Monday and Tuesday evenings to participate in Circle Sentencing. Each Circle usually lasts about an hour and the circle meets with 2 to 3 youth per night. If only one of these nights works for you, don't worry; we encourage our volunteers to only participate one day a week in order to prevent burnout.
If you are busy on Mondays and Tuesdays, no problem. If you volunteer with The Mentoring Program, you get to make your own schedule! We only ask that volunteers meet with their youth at least two times a month (4 hours total). If you can meet with your youth more than twice a month, that's great!
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Courtney or contact Angela. In order to participate, we ask that each volunteer fill out an application and a background check. Once a background check is submitted, we will ask for a list of your likes and dislikes, so that we can effectively match you with youth with common interests. Once these things have been completed, we will introduce you to a youth and you will be ready to start making a difference in your community!
