Give back by
becoming a mentor
1 in 3 young people will grow up without an adult mentor of any kind
SoLa I CAN! matches volunteers with local youth who are facing challenges in their young lives. By simply doing fun and interesting activities together, mentors can help mentees improve academics, improve their behavioral and emotional health, and positively change the course of a youth's life.
Volunteer mentors are matched 1-to-1 with a youth, ages 8-17, living in South Los Angeles. Our program includes either a 1 year or 6 month commitment to ensure youth develop a long-term, trusting relationship with their mentor.
Friendships are carefully matched according to interests, hobbies, and skills.
