YouthBuild – Heart of Oregon Corps

Recruiting mentors throughout Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook Counties

YouthBuild members transform their lives and roles in society through earning their GED, high school diploma, or college credits, learning job skills, and serving their community through building affordable housing. Mentors are a key part of the YouthBuild community, supporting the learning, development, and exploration of young people. A mentor is an individual who wants to have a positive impact on a young adult’s life. He or she is a trusted and caring person, who provides positive solutions and support. Mentors have the opportunity to provide access to people, places, and things outside the mentee’s daily routine and environment. YouthBuild mentors help focus attention on the trainee’s YouthBuild Life Plan, participate in group mentoring and enrichment activities, communicate twice a month with the volunteer coordinator, and participate in ongoing training sessions. Our mentors also earn a Youth Opportunity AmeriCorps Segal Education Award of $1,212.44!
