Youth to Youth Service Opportunity

This service opportunity is designed for senior high school students or youth between the ages of 16-19 interested in volunteering 2 weeks or more at Rivers of Mercy Children's Home.

Students participating in this opportunity will have a daily schedule with responsibilities Monday through Saturday. These responsibilities can include, but are not limited to, helping children get ready in the morning, helping in the kitchen, planning and/or helping with activities for the children, cleaning, organizing, etc. Youth with the ability to speak Spanish could also help the children with homework, lead activities with them, participate in teaching opportunities, and more.

This program was created to help youth step out of their world and into the world of someone else. When the student's time here ends, we hope that he/she will have a more comprehensive view of the world and a continued passion for serving those in need. This is also an opportunity for he/she to learn responsibility, discover new personal skills and talents, learn team work, and touch the life of the children.
