How can I get involved?We love that people want to get involved with the youth involved in our program.
Get Started Volunteering
Step 2: Inform
At the volunteer orientation, you will learn about our organization, volunteer opportunities, and be able to ask questions and decide whether volunteering with Mission 1:17 is a good fit for you.
Step 3: Screen
Because you’ll be working with at-risk youth, a majority of our volunteer positions require 2 or more clearances, and many require an FBI clearance. Our screening process also includes an interview that will allow us to get to know you as well as what type of volunteer role would best match you. Also, at the time of your interview, you will be asked to fill out paperwork to begin your background checks.
Step 4: Train
Before starting your volunteer role with Mission 1:17, all volunteers will be asked to attend a mandatory orientation and 2-hour training where you’ll learn about the youth you will be working with and how to appropriately handle different scenarios and situations.
Step 5: Start
You will then be placed in a volunteering position that best suits your interests, time commitment, and personality.
