“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
We currently are offering three opportunities- each opportunity offers a different commitment from the mentor, but all have a hands-on, relationship building focus.
Samaritas Refugee Mentorship
Samaritas has a program that offers mentoring to teenage refugees in the states. Teenagers are informed about the opportunity, and they choose if it is something they are interested in. Because of this, Samaritas is never sure how many mentors it will need at any given time- because teenagers come and go through the program. It helps them to have several people who have signed up and completed their forms so that when needs arise they have people willing and available.
They ask that anyone who signs up is willing to commit 4 hrs. a month for 9-12 months. For more information- see the document labeled "mentor/ tutor fact sheet." If you are interested, fill out the volunteer application and send it to:
