As we raise the standards and expectations of YouthBuild students, we are always looking for additional support to help make these goals attainable. This school year, we are providing new opportunities that will allow volunteers to work with our students to ensure their success at YouthBuild and beyond. We are interested in:
- Volunteer Tutors to assist our academic support classes and Saturday school sessions with homework and enrichment opportunities
- Career Mentors to help students prepare for career and post-secondary success through mock interviews and application assistance
- College Mentors to guide college-bound students through the admissions process
- Activities Advisors to oversee student clubs and after-school activities, such as choir, dance, cooking, and fitness
We are looking for individuals as well as groups from universities and organizations to help us fill these volunteer positions. Time commitments are flexible, and we will work with committed volunteers to find dates and times suitable for everyone involved.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Lauren Fitzgerald, Volunteer Coordinator, at 215.627.8671 ext. 51. Our volunteer program is constantly evolving, so please let us know if you have suggestions for improvement or other ways you would like to be involved with YouthBuild.
