Volunteer with Social Advocates for Youth. The Santa Rosa nonprofit needs YouthLink Education specialists to partner with case managers to help youth build their academic confidence, preparing for the GED or college or increasing their basic skills. It’s also looking for mentors who are willing to meet with youth at least twice a month and provide positive and gentle guidance, helping them achieve their goals. A six-month commitment is required.

A volunteer orientation will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Dream Center. Email stephanie@saysc.org.
