Make a difference. Be a mentor!
Are you looking for a truly meaningful volunteer experience? Studies show that spending just a few hours a month with a mentor can have a lifelong impact on a young person. Catholic Charities is currently recruiting volunteer mentors to work with youth ages 9-12 in Lake County.
Once you’ve been matched, develop a schedule and plan activities that work best for you and your mentee. Outings can happen during the week or weekend. Take in a movie, visit a museum, play a board game, or just spend a day in the park. Our Program Coordinator will be there every step of the way to offer guidance and help you develop a strong relationship with your mentee. Regularly scheduled special events bring all of our mentors and mentees together to engage in fun activities, share ideas, and build supportive relationships.

Must have 3 years of experience driving with a valid driver’s license
