ELITE Youth Outreach

Become a Volunteer

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody.

Talented volunteers from all walks of life are the lifeblood of ELITE. Our High School volunteer teams work directly with the students during weekly class sessions. Volunteers serve as mentors and role models and encourage the ELITE participants to dream big!

Volunteer teams prep our teens for what will probably be their very first part-time job. They speak the truth in love and pull no punches as they deliver the cold hard truth that “sagging pants and flagging spirits” will not cut it in the classroom or in the business world.

Our volunteers are also “cheerleaders” for our students. They help provide encouragement and practical skills. They are adults who take the time to really listen and care. They are positive role models with valuable life experiences.

Are you willing to listen? Are you willing to care? Are you willing to make a difference in the lives of young people? Then we want you to contact us and learn more about our ELITE High School volunteer program.
