Lincoln's ChalleNGe continues to bring mentoring organizations,
civic clubs, private sector business, and public agencies into a
dialogue to create community partnerships. These partnerships
extend to the organizations the ability to do mentor recruitment
and training on a community level. This gives LCA the ability to
involve community volunteers and bring a spirit of community
ownership to the program. See also the Contribute
section for more information.
Lincoln's ChalleNGe is always looking
for individuals to volunteer their time in helping us meet the needs
of at-risk youth in their communities. We have a variety of opportunities
throughout the state of Illinois where an interested individual
can help us make a difference.
By becoming a mentor, you can become a vital
force in helping a graduate of our program realize his/her dreams.
The mentor's role is necessary in the 12-month Post Resident Phase
to insure continued success of our graduates. Mentors are a role
model, friend, advocate and supporter.

This is a very important position to the Lincoln's
ChalleNGe Program. The Regional Coordinator is extremely busy with
enrolling youth, recruiting mentors and raising program awareness
in communities. Occasionally, we receive inquiries from interested
and concerned individuals who want to do more to help their communities.
With training and guidance from the Regional Coordinator, these
individuals can become our Community Liaison. With their help, we
are able to establish a network of individuals in communities who
work together to increase program awareness, assist in enrolling
youth and help find other interested members of their communities
to become mentors. This is an increasingly important volunteer
position, as there are only so many communities in Illinois
that a Regional Coordinator can get to during a year. To inquire
about opportunities, please contact the Regional
Coordinator in your area.
