Your Time Makes an Impact
In order to achieve the ambitious community goals of Northfield Promise, we need the support of the full community. Find an opportunity below where you can get involved with local youth.
Promise to help Northfield kids …
Breakfast Buddies – Eat breakfast with Greenvale Park Elementary School students. Talk with them about their upcoming day, play games and maybe do a little reading together. The commitment is one morning per week (and can easily adjust around your travel schedule!).
Accelerate Northfield – Provide extra tutoring for a Northfield student who needs it. The commitment is one hour – or more, as fits your schedule – per week.
HealthFinders – HealthFinders Collaborative provides medical services to low-income, uninsured and underinsured individuals in our community. HealthFinders volunteers are invaluable partners and deliver critical services (such as medical providers, interpreters, receptionists and nurses), as well as administrative and fundraising support.
YMCA – From helping with special events and working with children to coaching or mentoring, your skills and interests will make a difference here.
TORCH – TORCH provides academic and mentoring support for Northfield youth who are students of color, from low-income homes, and/or potential first-generation college attendees. Opportunities to get involved include mentoring youth, tutoring students, assisting with college applications/financial aid or volunteering with afterschool programs.
