Volunteer

 

SMYL’s success is due to the volunteers that offer their time and talents to the organization. SMYL Mentors are a positive role-model for the youth of Seneca County. Volunteers are utilized in the Traditional, School Pals and IMPACT mentoring program. In these roles, volunteers are able to form a relationship with a youth age 6-17 years old to help them make better decisions for a brighter future!
