Volunteers are valued at Path 2 Change and are an important part of the work we do.
Commitment from volunteers assisting those in need in our community, helps us ensure the best possible delivery of services.
The satisfaction gained from doing something for someone else is an experience that can’t be paid for, and when you know that it might make a real difference to someone in your community, and then it will benefit not only you, but the whole community. Helping those who are doing it tough, gives you the opportunity to grow your skills and capabilities in a new and different area as well as meet new people and make friends.

Positive youth development research has long demonstrated that youth benefit from close, caring relationships with adults who serve as positive role models. Today, 8.5 million youth continue to lack supportive, sustained relationships with caring adults. The supportive, healthy relationships formed between mentors and mentees are both immediate and long-term and contribute to a host of benefits for mentors and mentees. Mentoring—which matches youth or “mentees” with responsible, caring “mentors,” usually adults—has been growing in popularity as both a prevention and intervention strategy over the past decades.
Mentoring provides youth with mentors who can develop an emotional bond with the mentee, have greater experience than the mentee, and can provide support, guidance, and opportunities to help youth succeed in life and meet their goals. Mentoring relationships can be formal or informal with substantial variation, but the essential components include creating caring, empathetic, consistent, and long-lasting relationships, often with some combination of role modeling, teaching, and advising. Mentoring can help youth as they go through challenging life transitions, including dealing with stressful changes at home or transitioning to adulthood.
