Mentor & Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Mentor at Step Up

Why Mentoring?

Being a consistent adult presence in a young person’s life, mentors can offer advice, share life their experiences, and help a young person navigate challenges. The development of a trusting relationship is priceless for an individual who does not have a trusted support network.

  • Primary Mentors connect 1:1 with a young adult at Step Up. They offer support, encouragement, and a listening ear. Primary mentors are encouraged to build relationships with the young adult though quality time spent together.

  • Specific Mentors provide opportunities for young adults to engage in a specific activity or skill with them, for example a cooking class, or sharing a favorite leisure time activity.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many opportunities to volunteer by sharing your time and talents. A few examples include:

        • Helping with landscaping and home improvement projects

        • Providing occasional transportation

        • Inviting a young adult to join you for an activity

        • Attending a Sunday dinner

        • Teaching a class or skill

        • Providing a night or weekend of respite for our House Managers

Contact us if you'd like to get involved. We'd love to find a fit for your time and talent to enhance the lives of the young adults we serve.
