Ways to Volunteer

Become a Mentor

Our Mentors are committed individuals who work on a consistent basis for one to two years. Their goal is to maximize the potential of the young people with whom they work. YASP fosters positive relationships between our youth and working professionals and exposes them to a variety of career choices. This enables our young adults to make positive connections between the world of work and their community. They will develop personal skills and career awareness which will help them make better life-long decisions and enhance their opportunity to contribute to their community. Youth will benefit from valuable academic and professional advice and will also have the opportunity to create unique and lasting relationships with their Mentors.
