YouthBuild Philly is a non-profit alternative charter school that seeks to provide a second chance to high school dropouts ages 18-21 in the Philadelphia area. Along with their high school diploma, students can learn vocational trades, gain certifications in those trades, partner with community colleges in the city, and have opportunities to develop professional skills during and after the completion of our program.
As we continue to raise the standards and expectations of YouthBuild students, we are always looking for additional support to help make these goals attainable. We provide opportunities that allow volunteers to work with our students to ensure their success at YouthBuild and beyond. We currently have a need for:
- Volunteer Tutors to assist our academic support classes and Saturday school sessions with homework and enrichment opportunities.
- Career Mentors to help students prepare for career and post-secondary success through mock interviews and application assistance.
- College Mentors to guide college-bound students through the admissions process.
We are looking for individuals as well as groups from universities and organizations to help us fill these volunteer positions. Time commitments are flexible, and we will work with committed volunteers to find dates and times suitable for everyone involved.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please fill out this interest form. If you are interested in becoming a part of our movement, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Loeb at firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiries.
