Give Your Time
Ready to Help?
As a Mentor
Our mentors work directly with our youth. After attending a Mentor Orientation and Training, you will be considered for a one-on-one match with one of our youth. We do request for a year long commitment, and offer the opportunity for a longer Mentorship to our youth.
Our mentor applicants must be dependable and dedicated to the success of our youth. We look for leadership qualities, and the ability to provide support and guidance to your mentee.
As a Volunteer
Our volunteers can be under the age of 18, so long as they have written consent from parental figure or guardian. Our volunteers often have many different kinds of jobs in our home. From working in fundraisers, to helping keep the house in order, there is never a dull moment as a volunteer for the Optimist Youth House.
If you are a student volunteering for service learning credit hours for a school, please submit your school name and contact information before volunteering.
Both mentors and volunteers will receive training and handbooks from Optimist Youth House.
