Volunteer Opportunities

Community volunteers help us enhance our programs in a variety of ways.  We have many opportunities for groups and individuals to play a role improving the lives of young people in our community.  Have an idea?  Let us know! Contact us, get “plugged in”, and join our mission of helping troubled teens become productive adults.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities or to share your ideas, please contact our Development Team at 812.479.7535 or email marketing@umyh.com.

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

This opportunity includes creating and donating baskets!

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!
