SVTC sometimes receives requests for volunteers that don't meet our event guidelines. We like to share some of these individual volunteer opportunities with our members, in case they catch your interest.
MENTORS NEEDED ? PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
CommonBond Communities, a 40 year old nonprofit has 40 young people waiting for a mentor. The youth, living in CommonBond affordable housing communities are waiting to be matched with caring adult volunteers all over the metro. At just one housing community near the St. Paul Cathedral, there are over a dozen youth waiting for a mentor. By being a mentor/tutor you become part of youth programs with an outstanding track record. 95% of the youth who participate in CommonBond programs graduate from high school despite the fact their families earn $14,500 per year on average. Because you value education, we hope you choose to help break the cycle of poverty and help these youth focus on their education as a way to succeed in life!
