We Need You!

Alive needs adult and teen volunteers to mentor, tutor, and hang out with our teens after school, and help out with events. Alive also has exciting opportunities for teens to further develop their leadership and professional skills via internships and positions on our Student Advisory Board.

Teens receive service hours for all time spent volunteering at Alive, and you make a difference in a younger teen’s life.
