We can’t do this alone, we need your help. Bright Futures for Youth in Nevada County depends on volunteers, from after-school drivers to mentors. You power our programs. And your experience makes a big difference in the lives of our youth – and the future of our community.

Here are just some of our volunteer needs:

  • Mentor – Spend some time with a youth, share an activity and/or passion – and be a much-needed friend. Learn more
  • Driver – Drivers take youth from school to meetings, activities, on field trips or even medical and other important activities – and also take them home. Drivers use their own vehicles.
  • Tutor – Work one-on-one for an hour to provide academic help and encourage sound study skills.
  • Youth center – Our drop-in Youth Center depends heavily on volunteers, who help coordinate events and work closely with youth.
  • Kitchen volunteer – We provide several thousand meals every year to youth. Ingredient prep, meal service and clean up shifts are available.
  • Office volunteer – Your assistance with calls, mailings, organizing and other office tasks would be a huge help.
  • Fundraising events – Have some fun and help us during one of our many fundraising events during the year. Whether it’s helping with planning and setup, or helping with registration, you can help us raise money – and meet some new people and have fun at the same time.
