Description

If you're looking for a volunteer opportunity in the Alexandria area, look no further! Casa Chirilagua's Mentoring Program has an emphasis on impacting the community through building relationships in the Arlandria neighborhood- also known as Chirilagua.


Our goal for our mentoring program is for TWO lives to transform through ONE mentorship. Our mentors provide our youth with a stable adult relationship that gives them access to opportunities and experiences that help them reach their full potential. This mentorship is a combination of academic support with emotional development. Every mentorship is different because every student and mentor different, so we don't have a curriculum.


Our mentors commit to one year (preferably more) to a student who is in one of our programs. It's a 1-on-1 mentorship and is community based (you meet in the student's home, public space, parks, etc.) and you meet for a minimum of 1 hour per week (year round). We only serve youth who are in our Casa Chirilagua programs and live in our neighborhood- Chirilagua.
