Plummer Youth Promise is a great organization and I am so happy to be a small part of it. I have other organizations that I support but this is the only one where I feel a real connection. You play a big role in helping me feel connected.”
–Karen V. who makes monthly dinners for the group home
We are immensely grateful for the many people who help Plummer Youth Promise achieve it’s mission by giving time. Volunteer opportunities range from short-term commitments like helping with mailings or events, to long-term commitments, like mentoring.
Before volunteering at Plummer for anything other than a one-day project or event, you will need to attend some training. At the low end, training will include a one-hour overview of the work we do and the young people we serve. For long-term commitments like mentoring, training is considerably more substantial. Also depending on the nature of the volunteer work, volunteers will need to compete a background check.
While we occasionally accept a high school or college student for short-term projects, we generally are looking for volunteers over the age of 21 who enjoy being around young people. Those willing to make a long-term commitment might consider becoming a mentor to one of our young men or women.
To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up for one of our information sessions listed below. All sessions will be held at Plummer Youth Promise at 37 Winter Island Road in Salem, MA.
