Volunteer Opportunities:

Mentors: Pasadena YouthBuild is seeking mentors to develop relationships with the students and help them make good decisions about their futures, their education and their careers.

Santa's Helpers: Each holiday season Pasadena YouthBuild students write a letter to Santa where they ask Santa for something for themselves or something for someone else. PYB needs volunteer "Santas" to help fulfill these very meaningful wishes.

Chaperones: Throughout the year Pasadena YouthBuild takes its students on field trips to universities, museums and other educational destinations in the Greater Los Angeles area. PYB is in need of volunteers for such trips and other special events.
