Contributions of service are always welcome. Volunteer opportunities are varied and may involve a one-time project or an ongoing commitment. These gifts of time and special expertise help us to maximize limited resources and provide our students with the best quality services.

Become a Mentor

Mentors are a key part of the ‘caring community' surrounding our boys. Mentoring is defined as a sustained, positive relationship between a youth and an adult. As a mentor, you make a commitment to spend one hour each week at lunchtime with a San Miguel student offering your guidance, support, and attention. Playing games, listening to a description of the last athletic event, sharing your experiences - the quality time that you spend with your mentee can have a life-long impact.

There are no special requirements to become a mentor - just a willingness to commit an hour each week to changing a life. Our mentors are men and women of all ages coming from varied backgrounds. Among our mentors are college students and retirees, teachers and lawyers, artists and police officers - no special experience is needed! Mentors complete a background check and participate in an orientation before meeting their mentee. A commitment of at least one school year is requested - many of our mentors stay with a student for four years.
