Volunteer/Mentor

Volunteer/Mentor

Our mission is to ensure maximum utilization of private charitable resources and local, state, and government assistance to support the development of healthy communities and lifestyles, thereby decreasing at-risk behaviors that lead to violence, unemployment, disease, incarceration and re-incarceration, premature death, and economic exclusion cause by generational cycles of poverty.

 

The Dannon Project serves people on a practical and skill level but, we need people to serve them on a human level. Mentorship is an integral part of the journey participants embark on as they reestablish their lives.
