Louisville Youth Group thrives because of it’s dedicated volunteers, mentors, and board members. We are grateful for the community that surrounds us with love, guidance, and support.
Louisville Youth Group mentors create a safe space for our youth, build trust through relationships, and promote positive conversation and self-image. Mentors strengthen LYG by sharing their unique talents and gifts with our youth, staff, and each other. Everyone has made it to where they are because of mentors along the way.

If you’d like to support Louisville Youth Group, but you don’t think mentoring is the right fit for you, LYG has number of ways for Volunteers to support our mission beyond mentoring. Volunteers support LYG as committee members, Event Managers, by providing operations and logistics support, and tabeling events.
Louisville Youth Group’s board performs the important vision work required to continue a path of growth and opportunity for LYG. The Board determines our mission, supervises our director, participates in strategic planning, builds fundraising and resources development and assists in logistics and operations.
