About Volunteering

Volunteers at DinoMights provide pivotal academic instruction, hockey assistance, and most importantly mentoring relationships. These volunteers receive training and follow-up assistance from the program staff at the beginning and throughout the year.

In 2016-17 there were over 40 coaches, tutors, and mentors involved in the program. DinoMights hosts a Fall Training and Orientation Day and team development for all of our volunteers and staff to prepare in the areas of academic tutoring and hockey instruction for the year.

We also have opportunities for small groups and individuals to help with periodic projects and ongoing administrative tasks. Or if you'd like to donate your professional skills to build DinoMights' capacity to serve urban youth, please contact us

"I signed up to be a coach for Hockey in the Hood camp as my 'community service' project for the year. Nine years later, I'm still here. I think DinoMights has done more for me than I've done for them."
