Make a difference in the life of an at-risk youth and in your community by becoming involved through our volunteer program. Volunteers play an important role in our organization. We have opportunities for volunteers in fundraising, outdoor and indoor youth programs, special events, as well as volunteer positions in youth mentoring.
