|Get Involved In STAR/PAL
Volunteers are the key to making organizations such as STAR/PAL successful. Volunteers make it possible for STAR/PAL to reach the youth of our community and make a real difference in their lives. The majority of STAR/PAL volunteers include law enforcement officers, firefighters, park & recreation staff and community leaders. All prospective volunteers must complete the appropriate paperwork for their classifications, either sworn or civilian. The application process takes approximately 2-6 weeks and will include a criminal background check for all volunteers interested in working with kids. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Officer Edwin Garrette by e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
|STAR/PAL Mentoring programs are a fun way to give kids a helping hand!
STAR/PAL is kicking off 2 brand new mentoring programs and need volunteers who have a passion for youth and serving their community!
The youth in our mentoring programs are pre-selected from inner-city schools --- children who would greatly benefit from your guidance, support, and encouragement. A trusting relationship with a caring adult can truly have a life-changing effect on a child. Research data indicates that mentor programs have reduced first-time drug use by nearly 50% and alcohol use by 33%. In addition, mentored youth display greater confidence in schoolwork and improvement in academic performance.
Please consider getting involved today! We need YOU to help make our STAR/PAL mentoring programs a success!
