MENTORING OUR YOUTH
A positive mentor can change and, in some cases, save a young person’s life. Yet many kids today don’t have any positive adult figures in their lives. Young people who meet regularly with a mentor are 38% more likely to graduate on time, 55% more likely to enroll in college and 130% more likely to hold leadership positions.
Mentoring & Volunteering Makes The Difference
We have many mentoring and volunteer opportunities within all three of our Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg facilities that can be customized to meet your schedule. Both Mentoring & Volunteering at our Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg is a great way to help teach young people valuable life lessons and learn something about yourself in return.
When you volunteer at our Boys & Girls Club of Harrisburg, you can make a difference in the lives of youth and give back to our community. Within the first few minutes of walking into one of our three Club Houses, you know you’re in a special place. Filled with the sounds and energy of enthusiastic children and friendly, caring professionals, the Club is a fun and hopeful environment.
Whether you help with homework, coach a game, or teach an art project, you’ll have the opportunity to build healthy relationships with young people eager for adult guidance, and have a positive impact on their lives. In turn, you will find that spending time with our young people has a positive impact on you as well.
