What is Impact?

Impact is similar to a big brother/big sister program that matches a pair of volunteers (one male/one female) with an at-risk student age 12-17. Each week, the volunteers become mentors by spending around 1 hour with the teen, during which they participate in an uplifting and encouraging activity of their choice. Also, a monthly group activity for all teens and their mentors is held. Volunteers aim is to be a friend, example and support to the teen.

How do I get involved?

1.) Reach out directly to one of the directors on the "contact us" tab, or email impact@byu.edu for answers to questions and to receive more information about volunteering for the program.
Volunteer Commitment: 1-2 hours per week.
2.) You will need to fill out a BYU Background Check before volunteering. Honor Code standing will also be checked.
3.) Training: Please complete this mandatory 25 minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with this program.

After you complete these trainings and contact one of the directors, you will be invited to attend an additional training meeting before beginning your service

If you have questions, contact the program directors by phone or by email at impact@byu.edu.
