An hour a week – a lifetime of change.
Become a mentor. It only takes an hour a week to be that one person who can change everything for a child.
The reward? Knowing you’ve helped a young person live up to his or her potential. More than 96% of mentors say they’d recommend becoming a mentor to a friend.
Northville Youth Assistance is looking for adults who can remember what it was like to have someone like this when they were a child, or what it was like to wish they did.
Volunteer mentors participate in a ten-hour training program, which takes place one evening a week for five weeks. Then they are matched with a Northville child between the ages of five and 16 and asked to spend an hour or so a week with the child, becoming a trusted friend and having fun together.
Northville Youth Assistance is a shared service between the City of Northville and Northville Township, with support of the Northville Public Schools. The purpose of this community-funded program is to improve the lives of Northville’s youth and their families through advocacy and program development. The program provides a variety of programs that center around building resiliency skills in the community’s youth to help prepare them for the challenges that face them. In addition to mentoring, NYA provides free counseling for youth and families in the Northville community, tutoring for elementary school children, homework help for middle school children, community service in lieu of suspension for middle school and high school students, youth empowerment classes and speakers on parenting issues. A separate component offers first time youthful offenders counseling, educational groups and community service as a diversion from the court system.

Serving Macomb, Wayne and Oakland Counties
There are a lot of reasons to become a Wayne County 4-H volunteer! A program of Michigan State University (MSU) Extension, Michigan 4-H is the largest youth development organization in the state, with more than 200,000 youth participating in countless ways. From veterinary science to performing arts, science and technology to youth entrepreneurship, and communications to outdoor and environmental education, today’s 4-H programs are so much more than farm animals—although we have those too!
At the core of 4-H, and critical to the success of its youth, are volunteers who give their time and talents to 4-H’ers. These volunteers serve in a number of capacities: some choose to help at camp, teach a workshop or lead a club, while others chaperone an event, lend their professional skills or help at the fair. As they provide hands-on guidance and real-world experience, these volunteers also offer young people another crucially important element: a healthy adult role model who helps to build their confidence and ignite their dreams for the future.
Visit the YMCA website for location information. Volunteer opportunities include greeters at the door; office opportunities (copies, computer inputting, phone calls, etc); volunteer coaching positions (these jobs are seasonal and last 8 weeks). Sports include basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball & Girls on the run); Child Mentor (mentor and supervise children ages 6 and up). Volunteers are middle school age up thru retirees.
If your group or organization is in need of volunteers, and you would like to be added to our list please contact Michelle Nabozny.
