If you are interested in volunteering with The Hope Center at Pullen, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer mentors make a one-year commitment to a young person to be their friend, life guide, and advocate. A mentor shows these young people that they are not alone—someone cares. What makes this such a powerful relationship is that the youth realize the mentor is there of their own accord—not paid to be there, as so many other adults in their lives are.
Tutors meet one-on-one with a student every week to enhance the student’s academic skills and promote productive academic habits. Providing help with homework and assisting with test preparation, tutors encourage student to become independent learners.
Our special events are an important part of our fundraising efforts throughout the year and we need help organizing the events, including soliciting sponsorships, obtaining silent auction items for the Raising Hope Gala, helping with décor for events, and other types of support.
The Hope Center at Pullen runs an internship program that places youth aging out of foster care in paid positions at area nonprofits. Through the summer we need volunteers to support these young people by driving them to and/or from their internship so that they can gain the work experience they need to become self-sufficient.
Cook a Meal
We are looking for volunteers who would like to “Adopt a Wednesday” by donating a lunch (serving 20) for our youth who will be attending class at The Hope Center. These classes center around building healthy relationships, building and maintaining community, financial skill building, mental and physical health, communication skills, and everyday life skills such as laundering clothes, grocery store shopping, cooking and cleaning–all critical skills they need as they transition to independence.
