Start Off the New Year by Mentoring a Child

Experience the rewards of making a difference in a child’s life!


Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization’s (IRCO) David Douglas Mentoring Project (DDMP) is seeking energetic volunteer mentors interested in supporting  elementary and middle school students who would benefit from interactions with a caring adult.


DDMP is a one-on-one mentoring program that matches a student from the David Douglas School District with an adult mentor from the community.  Students selected for the program are those with highest needs (low academic performance, behavior issues, language and cultural barriers) and could benefit from having a positive role model.

The students we serve are from Lincoln Park Elementary, Mill Park Elementary, and Ron Russell Middle School, and are in grades 4 through 8.  Mentors will meet with their mentees at least one hour a week at their school, after the school day.


We are looking for volunteers who have experience working with youth, and are patient, committed, flexible, creative, respectful and able to communicate in a diverse atmosphere.


Mentors must be willing to commit for a twelve month period and a background check is required.


Experience the satisfaction in helping a child mature, progress, and succeed.
