Volunteer opportunity

Refugee Youth Mentor

The Refugee Youth Mentoring Program was created to match an at-risk refugee youth with an adult mentor who can help provide one-on-one support that will include components of academic enrichment, cultural exchange and activities, social adjustment, communication and conflict resolution, and community service activities. Our program matches refugee students between the ages of 9 and 17 with a caring adult for a year-long mentorship.

Requirements:

  • One year montorship commitment
  • Completion of a volunteer application that includes a background check and participation in 6 hours of mentor training that focuses on trauma-informed mentoring
  • Dedication of two hours a week with mentee
  • Establishment of an open line of communication between yourself, Catholic Charities, and family of mentee

Contact: For more information or to apply for this volunteer position, please contact Lizzie Goddard at egoddard@cctenn.org, or call 615-760-2765.
