Be a Mentor
Have an afternoon free during your week? Children at one of our partnering agencies would love to hang out with you. You can help with homework, play games, and be an all-around good role model for young people. We’re always looking for friendly, compassionate people to help out in new and exciting ways.
It doesn’t take much to spread the word – tell your coworker, talk about it while you’re getting a haircut, share your thoughts with a friend over coffee. Just moments of your daily life can spread awareness for the need to educate these kids to break the cycle of poverty.
Support Our Events
Want to join an event committee? Be a team member to plan and execute our public events, including Champions for Children. We look for dynamic, creative people with time to focus on making our events successful and fun.
Looking for a one-time commitment? Assist with setup, breakdown, the auction, and check-in at an event. Sort backpacks 2 – 3 hours one day in August. Run or work a water station at the Pittsburgh Marathon. Or we could always use a hand with administrative work at our office.
Support our annual Champions for Children Gala by donating an auction basket. You and a group of friends can pitch in together! For instructions and item form click the button above.
