Volunteer Opportunities

Community volunteers help us enhance our programs by serving in a variety of different ways.  We have many opportunities for groups and individuals to play an important role in bettering the lives of young people in our community.  Have an idea?  Let us know!  Contact us, get plugged in, and be a part of our mission to transform troubled teens into productive adults.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities or share your ideas, please contact our Development Team at (812) 479-7535 or email marketing@umyh.com.

Once our kids leave UMYH we want to make sure that they remember their goals, accomplishments, and life lessons. So we send with them a Scrapbook of the memories made here.

We supply all the materials – come put together these keepsakes!

Come play board games, card games, or get outside! 

This is a great opportunity for a small group to come one evening and interact with our kids!

Weekends preferred during school.

Each month on the 3rd Thursday we invite the residents and their families to join us here for dinner. We have a therapist who provides an activity. This opportunity included providing dinner and helping serve it to them!

Do you have a talent? Are you a part of a group that performs or sings?

You are welcome to come and share your talents with us!

No performance is to big or to small!

Skilled in carpentry, construction, car maintenance, or landscaping? We’re looking to spruce up our campus! 

Projects may include:

  • Painting 
  • Lanscaping
  • Pressure Washing 
  • Cleaning

UMYH residents and students celebrate all Holidays and the youth love getting special treat baskets.

This opportunity includes creating and donating baskets!
