Penny Lane volunteers support the organization by providing administrative, fundraising, and staffing support. Volunteers also assist Penny Lane with activities and events for clients. Penny Lane volunteers are carefully screened and trained and are drawn from the local community.
The Mentor Program matches highly trained and motivated adult mentors with youth residing at Penny Lane’s main facitily or ten satellite homes, the Main Penny Lane Campus, those living in the eight satellite homes, Mental Health clients, FFA clients and transitional clients. Mentors provide general guidance and support, promote personal and social responsibility, improve academic performance, and encourage participation in services and community.
Penny Lane mentors are caring individuals from all walks of life who dedicate a few hours each week to serve as a positive adult role model for a Penny Lane child. Mentors are carefully screened and trained and have the support of Penny Lane staff and Penny Lane’s Volunteer Manager to address questions or concerns. Penny Lane mentors find that the sometimes uncertain path to developing a relationship with a Penny Lane child becomes a rich and rewarding experience.
