Event Time and Date
The Youth Life Foundation of Richmond is seeking volunteers to become weekly mentors.
After forms are completed and training occurs, mentors will be assigned a child and expected to volunteer two hours each week at one of our Northside Learning Centers. Each mentor works with his or her child for a two-hour session between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. from September through May. Mentors provide emotional encouragement, homework assistance and read with the children daily. Mentors are asked to make at least a one-year commitment. Their need for volunteer mentors is ongoing.
Mentoring opportunities are available all day during our six-week summer program, or volunteers can join our team as a full-time summer intern.
