A mentor is a trusted and influential supporter, adviser, and guide who is also a consistent, caring, and committed role model.

Each year Long Beach BLAST serves hundreds of youth and it is because of patient, enthusiastic and creative volunteers like you.

Thank you for stepping up to become a leader and a mentor for youth to help open doors for a brighter future.

College Students...

TO APPLY to become a BLAST mentor, please click "New Volunteer Application." You'll be asked to complete a series of questions as well as create a username and password. Your application becomes your BLAST profile and you can return to view or update information later. Choose a username and password that you'll remember or you will not have access to your BLAST profile.

TO SIGN-UP FOR A BLAST TRAINING SESSION, click on "Training Sessions." Please only register for one session, either a zoom training or on-site training. If you need to change your RSVP there are buttons to "remove me" [from a session] so that you can RSVP for one that better fits your schedule.

TO LOG-IN TO AN EXISTING BLAST PROFILE select "Volunteer Login" from the toolbar on the right.

Site Partners...

TO SUBMIT A YOUTH APPLICATION, please click " New Youth Referral" from the toolbar on the right. You will be asked to create a username and password for each youth referred. These are important so please keep a record of them.
