Community Service Opportunities

Richard Brown House

Richard Brown House is an independent senior housing facility in Loudon run by Volunteers of America. They have 34 seniors, our average age is about 75 right now, and there are several opportunities for Community Service for high school students here. 

There are different possibilities for community service options, but some examples are nail manicuring/befriending/dog walking for a disabled resident/technology help - they have a few newer residents who do have smart phones or use the computer/gardening/reading to or with someone/reminiscing.

Friends Youth Mentoring

The Friends Youth Mentoring Program, a non-profit now in its 43nd year, provides children high quality, supportive mentors who serve as positive role models. The program matches volunteer mentors with youngsters ages 6-17 in 1:1 professionally supported relationships. 

Based in best practices for effective mentoring, the primary goal of the healthy mentoring relationship is to create opportunities for youngsters to enhance self-esteem and strengthen behavior at home, school, and in the community. We help young people find the support they need to build productive and meaningful lives.  Ours is a prevention program.  

Children are referred by parents, guardians, school counselors, English as Second Language teachers, social workers, athletic coaches, and/or other professional providers from youth serving agencies. Mentors are screened and trained specific to this undertaking. Each match is selectively made and works with a professional mentoring expert who monitors the progress of the relationship and supports the match. With community-based, site-based, and site-based plus mentoring choices, our staff members remain available to parents/guardians, mentors, mentees, and referral sources.  

In fiscal year 2016, 125 children benefitted from mentorships.  There are currently 72 children waiting to be matched with a volunteer mentor.  They represent all genders and varying ages, interests and strengths, but all have the desire and documented need for consistent, steady, quality time and attention from a caring mentor. A mentor infuses strength into a child’s life.
