Volunteer Opportunities - 2019

***A new volunteer must attend one general volunteer orientation session and one program specific training session***


The C.H.A.N.C.E Mentoring Program

The Mentoring program matches youth ages 11-17 with an adult volunteer who provides support and guidance to the youth as they work towards achieving their set goals.  Volunteers are asked to commit to 2 hours once a week for a period of 6 months. Lots of training and support is provided. 

We have a waitlist of youth who are currently seeking Adult mentor matches. 

We are particularly looking for volunteers for youth in the Napanee & Odessa area, along with other areas in KFL&A.

If you are interested in volunteering for CHANCE Mentoring please send an email to Ashley (Mentoring Coordinator) areindel@youthdiversion.org or to Jackie (Volunteer Manager) jfranklin@youthdiversion.org

Rebound Program

Rebound is a 10-week cognitive skills program for youth ages 11-17.  Volunteers work with youth once a week for 2 hours in a group setting teaching them life skills.  Volunteers receive training prior to entering the classroom.

We currently do not have any volunteer opportunities for Rebound. Stay tuned for upcoming Fall Rebound Sessions.


If you are interested in volunteering for Rebound please send an email to Natalie (Rebound Coordinator) ngeorge@youthdiversion.org or to Jackie (Volunteer Manager) jfranklin@youthdiversion.org
