Palmdale, CA – Antelope Valley YouthBuild would like to invite members of the community to possibly become a Mentor for one of our young people (ages 16 & 17) as they go through their journey at Antelope Valley YouthBuild. The only requirements are to be willing to take part in a brief orientation/training, complete a background check and commit to a least 4 hours a month to support one of our deserving students.
By becoming a Mentor, you will be able to offer support and guidance. You don’t need prior experience-just be a caring adult who wants to make a difference in a young person’s life!
The mission of YouthBuild is to unleash the intelligence and positive energy of "opportunity" for youth to rebuild their communities and their lives. We seek to join with others to help build a movement toward a more just society in which respect, love, responsibility, and cooperation are the dominant unifying values, and sufficient opportunities are available for all people in all communities to fulfill their own potential and contribute to the well-being of others. Antelope Valley YouthBuild is a youth and community development program that simultaneously addresses core issues facing low-income communities: housing, education, employment, crime prevention, leadership and community development. For more information, please visit our website www.advancingcommunities.org.
