Youth Empowerment Program
Youth & Family Support: Our youth mentoring program matches volunteers in a one-on-one relationship with a middle or high school aged refugee youth. Volunteers have the opportunity to support them in personal challenges through goal setting and skills building. This is a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with youth who may be struggling in social-emotional or academic areas due to previous or current limitations.
Challenges may be in areas of communication, personal conflicts, basic literacy, and subject competency. The assistance you provide may vary based on need, yet is undeniably instrumental in their home, school, and personal success. The minimum time commitment for this program is one hour/week for the duration of the school year. Experience working with youth or in education preferred, but not required.
School SEL Support: Our school group social emotional learning (SEL) program matches volunteers with a refugee & immigrant youth support group in a Denver area middle or high school. Topics covered include cultural adjustment, healthy lifestyles, communities, and self-development.
Programming and support in their school setting provides a safe environment that allows for social emotional learning and growth while supporting our local schools excellent newcomers work. The minimum time commitment for this program is one school session a week for the duration of the school year. Experience working with youth or in education preferred, but not required.
