Crispus Attucks YouthBuild Charter School needs adult mentors to help more than three dozen students seeking guidance.

Crispus Attucks, based in York City, needs about 20 more volunteers, said program coordinator Dawn Squire. The mentors must be able to pass a criminal background check, but YouthBuild can help defray the costs if needed. Mentors from a variety of jobs and experiences are invited, Squire said.

The program also allows older students to tutor younger students, she said, giving the older students teaching experience and a chance to be a positive role model. YouthBuild Charter School is a dropout recovery program.
