Hope for Tomorrow is made up of and led entirely by volunteers; without their commitment, we wouldn't exist. Volunteering helps to spread the mission of Hope for Tomorrow across the metro area and beyond. There are three primary ways to volunteer with us:


Mentors make up the core of Hope for Tomorrow, and have the most direct impact. Every August and September chapters start looking for mentors to join their group for the upcoming school year. Every mentor is paired with a mentee at the first session to start making a difference in his or her life. Learn more about mentoring on the Become a Mentor page.

Substitute Mentors

Not sure you can commit to being a full mentor? While every mentor commits to being at each meeting, life can sometimes interfere with good intentions. Whether it's from illness or work conflicts, mentors sometimes miss a meeting. To help keep activities on track and make sure each child has one-on-one time with their own mentor, many chapters will keep a list of substitute mentors. If you're interested in becoming a substitute for a chapter, first read more about mentoring on the Become a Mentor page and then Contact Us.

Start a Chapter

Hope for Tomorrow is still expanding, and we need leaders in new areas to step up in their communities. If you don't see a chapter near you, consider starting your own. To learn more about how to start a chapter, see the Start a Chapter page.
