The Brotherhood Sister Sol is more than a community center for young people. We are a family of educators, counselors, advocates, friends, and mentors who provide a safe space full of resources and love for our members through holistic programming and activities.
As a volunteer, you add to the network of support for our members. Whether you are a mentor–directly working with our members as they grow and learn, or an extra pair of hands, assisting with special projects, or a guest speaker, we welcome your contribution to our family.
On Monday evenings, from 6-7:30pm, adult volunteers pair up with our 8-12 year olds for an evening of fun! Activities include games, recreational and enrichment projects. Mentoring Night is more than tutoring and homework help; it is an opportunity to support the growth and development of our youth. Mentor-mentee partners create bi-annual projects to present to families and staff. There are also bi-annual Saturday trips.
For our teens, ages 13-18, or recent alumni, ages 18-21, adult meetings with members are more flexible. They can meet monthly, seasonally, or commit to allowing a member to shadow or intern at their workplace. Mentors provide insight on a specific career or provide guidance as members make the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
Guest speakers share their expertise on a range of topics, exposing members to career and college opportunities as well as teaching about important issues.
We have people who dedicate a day, or several days, to work in the Frank White Green Thumb Community Garden – a 6,000 square foot urban greenspace and environmental center we steward (planting, landscaping), provide support at special events (registering guests, clean-up) and provide administrative assistance in the office.
