Mentor Application

We are very grateful for the many offers of support we receive and are fortunate to receive a large volume of volunteer applications.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to respond to all applicants at this time. We contact only those applicants whose skills and availability match our current needs. Our needs change constantly, so we keep applications on file for at least six months.

We want you to know how very much appreciate your interest in supporting our work with homeless youth.
