ways. We have many opportunities for
groups and individuals to play an important role in bettering the lives of
young people in our community. Have an
idea? Let us know! Contact us, get plugged in, and be a part of
our mission to transform troubled teens into productive adults.
appreciate all your support and involvement in making this vision reality!

a Holiday Party
a Game Night
Our kids love playing games, whether it
be board games, card games, etc. This is
a great opportunity for a small group of volunteers to come in one evening and
bring a variety of games to play with the youth. This could also include providing pizzas and
sodas! During the school year, the
weekends are ideal.
a Family Night
on a Performance
If you are part of a singing or
performance group, you are welcome to come out and present your gifts and
skills to our youth. We can schedule
your or your group for your own night or we may even be able to organize it
around an event we’re already planning in order to make it more fun like our
Annual Tea. No performance is too big or
UMYH residents and students celebrate all
the holidays, and the youth love getting special treat baskets. This opportunity would include creating treat
baskets for either the residents or the students (Easter baskets, Halloween
treat bags, etc.)
Memory Books allow us to capture each
youth’s journey throughout their treatment at UMYH. Their Memory Books document their progress
through our program. This is great for
those who love scrapbooking! This
opportunity is a commitment of meeting at UMYH at least once a month for a couple of hours. For this opportunity, volunteers must be 21
years of age or older.
