Mentor Russian Youth

Are you interested in learning about other cultures while at the same time helping build a brighter future for the refugee and immigrant youth of Portland?

Be a Mentor for teenage guys and girls in our community who have emigrated from Eastern Europe. Provide a voice and support in helping them adjust to a new culture, a new school system, engaging with new peers, a new language, and a new country, all while having to face the same adolescent pressures!    

The NYP, New Youth Perspectives program at Lutheran Community Services (does not require any religious affiliation), seeks creative committed individuals to contribute 1-½ hours per week for a six-month period to assist and create a number of academic and social activities.

We wish to create a cross-cultural understanding and mutual learning atmosphere for both mentor/mentee.

For more information of our diverse organization please contact New Youth Perspectives, Volunteer Coordinator, at (503) 231-7480 ext 672.
