CYP's programs engage youth long-term, from preschool to college. At each academic and developmental level, program volunteers and staff, develop interventions aimed at helping at-risk youth learn grade appropriate concepts. By combining these educational interventions with a wide variety of recreational, social, health, and career programs, CYP creates its comprehensive formula for success.
CYP relies on the commitment and skills of over 500 volunteers each year to keep our programs going. Volunteers are the backbone of our tutoring and mentoring programs, the chaperones on weekend excursions, medical personnel in our clinics, our extra help at events, and professions behind our job shadowing days. If you're interested in a smaller commitment, there are projects throughout the year that volunteers also help with. Examples include: Gardening, helping keep our playground clean, painting, set up/serving at our events, hosting a job shadowing day.
To volunteer in one of CYP's programs, please email [email protected] or directly contact the program coordinator of the site you'd like to volunteer with (information listed on each site's program page) to request a volunteer form.
