Intern & Volunteer

Become a mentor

Explorers are always looking for quality mentors to staff our program. It is our mentors that make our program unique.

Mentors work Monday through Friday at our center and oversee a group of 8-12 students each day. Many college students use their mentoring experience for internship credits. The best part is that it is a paid internship! Check with your school to see if our program qualifies. For a full job description or to apply, contact Ann Kawauchi.


Dozens of teenagers and adults volunteer at our program each week and we LOVE it!. We feel that everyone should have the opportunity to give back and serve others.

Volunteers come 1-5 times a week and help in various areas of the program. Some of the duties a volunteer can perform are: Prayer Coordinator, Snack Coordinator, Read-Aloud Specialist, Reading Intervention Specialist, Practical Living Specialist, Recreation Specialist, Explorers Banker, Explorers Store Keeper, Tutors, Homework Helpers.
