Become a partner
Creating a partnership with Champions of Youth provides assistance for our most important asset – our children. Successful partnerships with businesses, foundations, and organizations are fundamental to supporting our volunteer programs and providing mentoring relationships for all children who need and want them, contributing to brighter futures, better schools, and stronger communities for all.
Make a gift in honor of your mentor
Who helped you to become the person that you are today?
When you make a gift in honor of that person (or people) your mentor will receive a card and the satisfaction of knowing their influence is being felt by the next generation.
Start a friendly competition
Running a race? Want an alternative to a toy drive?
Use our personal fundraising tool to set up a page to raise money for children facing adversity. Or, organize a group of friends or colleagues and see who can raise the most money to help change a child's life for the better, forever.
Take part in our local events
Each year Champions of Youth hold numerous fundraising events throughout the county to raise awareness and funds needed for our great programs.
This year stop reading about the events and join in on the fun! We hold our Bowl For Kid's Sake, many county restaurants hold a Dine For Kid's Sake where they donate a portion of the evening's proceeds to CoY, or maybe take part in our 5K walk or run.
Be a Champion!
Volunteering is fun! Being a "Big Brother" or "Big Sister" is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you will ever do.
It's simple, too. You and your "Little" can share the kinds of activities you already like to do!
Male and female mentors are wanted and needed! We are looking for volunteers from all walks of life! Click on the image above to learn more about volunteering.
