Ways to get involved
Join Our After-School Team
Youth mentors at Higher Ground are critical, positive influences on youth living in underserved communities. They foster a commitment to these elementary and middle school youth as they promote good educational habits, strong interpersonal skills, and a sense of empowerment through various activities. They help our students gain confidence and open up their world to new purposes and possibilities for their lives.
Mentors are trusted adults who engage with our youth in an after-school program setting. Mentors will assist our youth with activities such as homework help, performing arts, fine arts, digital video media, cooking, and all sports. We uphold a small ratio of children to mentors so the interaction is close and meaningful. Our goal is to motivate students to find their personal and positive life paths.
Join our Human Trafficking Prevention Team
Higher Ground is working on the prevention of human trafficking in our community through education and awareness. Our curriculum focuses on self-esteem, healthy relationships, social media, and human trafficking. The 5-week peer-facilitated program presents human trafficking prevention to a highly vulnerable and targeted demographic and builds a relationship with the students.
