On-Going Volunteer Opportunities


Support the Migrant Population

The Migrant Mentoring Program matches community volunteers with a migrant child to meet weekly for duration of the family’s seasonal residence. The program improves academic achievement, develops cross-cultural connections, and increases access to the community for the children and their families. This program requires a yearly commitment to meet with mentees once a week. Recruitment for mentors begins in the early spring each year.
