Volunteer opportunities

Academic Mentoring and/or Tutoring

An academic mentor works alongside their assigned student to help them set academic goals and make progress through the school year. The Academic Mentor and student will meet consistently each week to check in. If a tutor is needed, then a tutor will be made available to the student.

Boys to Men Mentoring

Each week, 3-4 Mentors will meet with a group of students at the school for a group discussion about how the students are feeling and what is going on in their lives. The focus for a mentor in this program is to be curious, listen, be respectful and be supportive. And to show up consistently each week.

Board of Directors

The Launch Pad Teen Center’s Board of Directors is composed of both adults and youth. Youth hold voting positions on the board alongside adults and have equal voting power. If you are a teen or an adult that would like to apply to join our board of directors please contact Costerfelt@thelaunchpadteencenter.org

Special Events

The Launch Pad hosts music shows, dances, and open mics for teens and we often need volunteers to help with the events. From checking youth into the event to serving snacks and chaperoning on the dance floor, volunteers are very helpful on special event nights.

Volunteer to Drive the Shuttle!

A great way to support The Launch Pad is to drive our after school shuttle once a week! Our shuttle runs to various local schools after school each day and it helps our staff tremendously when we have volunteers! If you have a clean driving record, valid driver’s license, the ability to obtain a fingerprint card, and an hour a week to volunteer, please email Nikki@thelaunchpadteencenter.org.
