Life Support’s Community For Youth (COMFY) Mentoring Project empowers young people of all ages to develop self-confidence, earn community service credits for school, and to learn and hone valuable life skills through building volunteer internships at home and across the globe.  It also offers an opportunity for mentors to share their life experiences and model a responsible work ethic as they guide their mentor students through the planning and preparation phase of their projects.  Along with all of this, we also offer free life coaching to young people between the ages of 18-30 help them take inventory of their lives and how to make sound, achievable plans for their future.

In addition, we help train young people how to run a non-profit business from the inside out – from word processing to websites, including finances, grant writing, fundraising, time management, team building, leadership, and more. For even more far reaching life skill development we assist our mentor students in creating global volunteer internships to give them an opportunity to use the valuable business and life skills to help them grow into their adult lives through global community service.
