Mentor A Youth

Being a mentor is an exciting and rewarding experience that gives adults the opportunity to change the life of a local youth. By sharing just a few hours of your time each week, you can influence a young person  forever. Being a mentor is as easy as being available to talk to, “hang out” with, or just listen to a youth. Being a role model and a positive influence for a youth may be simple but the rewards are priceless. Learn more about our Mentoring Programs & Opportunities here!

Volunteer Your Time & Talents

By sharing their time and talents, volunteers not only help improve their communities but also gain satisfaction from contributing a part of themselves towards making a difference. Waterbury Youth Services offers many volunteer opportunities. Please Contact Us for more information.

We also welcome corporate and other groups seeking service opportunities. In one afternoon, a motivated group can transform a program space or engage a group of children on a special activity

Support Our Fundraising Events

Waterbury Youth Services holds several annual fundraising events and offers many sponsorship opportunities. By partnering with us for one of these events, you are not only promoting your business to a targeted audience but you are demonstrating your company’s commitment to the future of our youth.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a highly personal way to invest in the future of our youth. A planned gift may be in the form of a bequest in a last will and testament, a charitable trust, a life insurance policy, a remainder gift from a retirement plan, a charitable gift annuity or an IRA rollover. Supporting Waterbury Youth Services in this manner may be an excellent way of benefiting your personal financial needs, estate and tax planning, as well as guaranteeing that Waterbury Youth Services can continue to offer programs and services to future generations of youth in our community.
