Donate how your gift can help

Investing in the future and contributing to a stronger community

YouthNet reaches close to 600-800 students each year, yet there are over 8,000 children between the ages of 5 and 18 in our schools who can benefit from having a mentor in their life.

YouthNet works in helping to ensure these youth develop into responsible, educated, and contributing members of society. Such a continuum of support throughout one’s school life helps ensure lives are positively impacted. However, such a support requires much work, volunteers, and commitment from our donor community.

How will my donation help? Where does the the money go? General operating support assists YouthNet in serving hundreds of children across the island each year. Through our mentoring and reading programmes,

we provide children with opportunities that lead to improved attitudes toward school, increased literacy skills and improved decision making. Through building meaningful relationships, mentors continue to inspire confidence within their mentees to be the best they can be, resulting in many mentees holding a positive view of their future.  This support is also critical to delivering Best Practice relationship and volunteer management which includes  recruitment, application, training, screening, matching, recognition and weekly relationship support and supervision.
