Join us for The BIG Recruit

New year, new goals! Now’s the perfect time to make those New Year’s resolutions. In honor of January as National Mentor Month, we’ve made a resolution of our own — to recruit 140 new volunteers in 60 days! We’re calling it The BIG Recruit and we want you to join us!

We’re seeking caring adults like you to mentor children ages 8 to 13.  Each pair or “match” develops a unique relationship based on their interests, hobbies, and values. As a volunteer, you’ll spend time with your mentee in the community doing free or low-cost activities you both enjoy. Find an activity on your own, or take advantage of the great match events we offer for free

Through this rewarding experience, you’ll gain new perspectives, new experiences, and a new friend. See for yourself – apply to volunteer today


Help us reach our goal!

Currently, 333 Twin Cities youth are waiting to be matched with a caring adult mentor. Here are some easy ways you can help get more kids off the waiting list!
