Volunteers and academic mentors have been a major part of Boys Town's mission since 1917. 

Volunteer Mentor PhotoIn the early days, volunteers and mentors assisted Father Edward Flanagan with cooking, sewing and cleaning for his boys. Today, Boys Town volunteers and mentors carry on the legacy of those early helpers through a variety of activities and projects that benefit Boys Town and our boys and girls. We appreciate every hour you are willing to give to help children and families in need.

General Volunteer/Academic Mentor Requirements:

  • Must be 19 or older.
  • Must be a permanent resident of the Omaha, Nebraska, metro area.
  • Must pass extensive background checks and pass drug screen.
