One of the most important gifts you can give us is the gift of your time. Whether you prefer to work at a special event, mentor a child, or help in our programs or office, there is a variety of ways to get involved. Check our calendar for upcoming volunteer opportunities or download our comprehensive list of volunteer opportunities to see all opportunities for 2019.



MWYF is able to provide outstanding programs and services to Jacksonville's at-risk youth through generous donations from people like you. Unrestricted gifts allow us to address our most critical needs. However, we have a select number of unique and meaningful programs that are also funded through donor support. Contributions are tax deductible.        



Save the Date: Our Annual Gala recognizes our student athletes for all of their hard work and success on and off the tennis court. We hope that you will join us at this year's Annual Gala on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at the Florida Blue Conference Center.
