Being a mentor affords you the opportunity to give back to the community in a very substantial way. By giving some of your time, you can inspire a youth to reach his or her full potential. Children Uniting Nations provides various opportunities to get involved depending on the time you are able to commit. Our School Based Program is geared towards volunteers who would like to participate primarily on a weekly basis while our Life Skills Mentoring Program is for those who would like to spend time outside of the classroom environment for longer but less frequent amounts of time. Both programs offer one-time occasions to volunteer as well. So do our mega events.
“I think it was good for [my mentee] to have someone to talk to yesterday. She really opened up to me, which was very exciting. We just talked about everyday things, but her attitude seemed more like she wanted to be there with me and she enjoyed the time, rather than just doing it to get out of class, or just for something to do. I think she benefits just because she had a chance to talk to someone who would listen.” – Mentor
