“I’ve always enjoyed working with kids. I used to coach girls’ soccer teams, so being able to give feedback in a helpful and useful way is something I felt confident in. It was a good fit for me at that time in my life. So I applied to become a mentor and began spending one day a week at ROP.”
We have roughly 50 volunteers who consistently dedicate time each week throughout the year. Volunteering has looked quite a bit different as we creatively engage current volunteers virtually for the time being.
It was Christmas time of 2018 when Mary first came into Covenant House Alaska’s Youth Engagement Center. It was shortly after that event she submitted a mentor application. She began her mentorship in March of 2019.
