With one in five children living in poverty in the Inland Empire, there is a clear need for committed adults in the lives of disadvantaged youth. Inland Empire United Way is calling for volunteers in our community to step up on behalf of local kids.
Through its Mentor Connection initiative, United Way is recruiting mentors, readers, and tutors to inspire local children to achieve academic success and future self-sufficiency. Partnering with reputable nonprofits throughout the Inland Empire, United Way had identified an array of organizations in need of caring adults to make a difference in the lives of local youth. Community members interested in volunteering can find these opportunities by searching the Mentor Connection webpage at
Anyone can get involved. Here are five ways you can help during National Mentoring Month:
1. Become a mentor for a child or teen in our community.
2. Establish a partnership between your company and a local mentoring organization.
3. Recognize mentors in your life by posting a tribute to them online.
4. Make a donation to a mentoring program in our community.
5. Tell others about MentorConnection.org via Facebook or by email.
