Become a Volunteer

Each youth from foster care is one caring adult away from being a success story. You could be that one person!

WAY Alliance has a number of volunteer opportunities where you can make a difference. Take a look at the list below to see what position might be a good fit for your skills, interests, or abilities. (And don't worry, we'll train you for the position!)

Volunteer Opportunities


Mentors meet one-on-one with their youth each week to set goals, offer guidance, and develop a relationship. View a detailed description of a WAY Alliance mentor (PDF). Learn more about how to become a WAY Alliance mentor.

Small Groups

Small groups (minimum of 4 adults 25 years old and up) are matched with a youth and pray for them regularly. They also serve as an extended network of support for the youth and send cards and encouraging letters on holidays and on the youth's birthday. View a detailed description of Small Groups (PDF).

Life Skills Facilitators

Life Skills Facilitators conduct life skills classes for mentor/youth matches. View a detailed description of a Life Skills Facilitator (PDF).
