I like doing things where it’s helping them be more successful in life skills, so [C4Y has] been a pretty powerful experience for me.
-Sarah Robinson, Mentor
The most valuable way you can get involved with the work Youth Advocacy is through youth mentoring with C4Y. In exchange for a commitment of just a few hours of your time each month, you’ll be an integral part of a program that keeps kids away from drugs, gangs, and other at-risk behavior.
The mentors work with small groups of 5-10 elementary or middle school children to teach them about building trusting and structured relationships with adults. The groups get together for an hour at a time, once a week on school grounds, and groups work together for 24 weeks. All participating schools are in the 78744 zip code.
