Upcoming Youth Outreach Opportunities

Check out ways to get involved as a volunteer instructor!

Our Youth Outreach programs are a great way to get involved with The Mountaineers and make a difference by teaching kids in the South Sound.  

To volunteer with our youth outreach programs, first you'll need to become a Qualified Youth Leader.  Once you've completed that process (which should take just a day or two), go ahead and click on one of the opportunities below to learn more and register as an instructor!.

Don't see anything that fits your schedule?  Email our chair, , to let her know you'd like to help out in the future!  Thanks so much.
