Problems with your application or this site?  Please contact volunteer@mntc.org and let us know what you need help with.

Please note: if you wish to mentor a client, we suggest you only apply to be a mentor at this time. You can always volunteer for other opportunities in the future. Mentors MUST BE 21 years or older and cannot be a relative of the client.
(Note, we do not provide mentors for our Lakeside Academy teen boys program.)

Group Volunteer Opportunities: if you are looking to volunteer as a group (large or small), there is no need to apply online. Please contact the appropriate Volunteer Coordinator at your nearest center.

Lakeside Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Lakeside Academy, a ministry of Mn Adult & Teen Challenge!

When reviewing the Opportunities, notice the age requirements and the blue "i", information button. Select this blue button to learn additional information about that opportunity.

Please know that Lakeside's programming is structured in a Christian, faith-based environment. So all volunteers need to be comfortable working in such a setting. Those desiring to volunteer in roles where they will be working directly with our clients are required to complete the Faith page on the application. All other volunteers can certainly complete the Faith page, but it is not required.
