Opportunity Title
Male Mentors Needed!
Project Description
Male mentors are needed to serve with the Department of Family Services' BeFriend-A-Child Mentoring Program! BeFriend-A-Child matches adult volunteers with children between the ages of 5-12 who are in need of a mentor. All have experienced trauma in some form or another, such as child abuse or neglect, familial substance abuse, domestic violence, or parental absence. Our hope is that through developing a relationship with a mentor, these children will increase their confidence, have a healthy and positive outlet, and develop resiliency against life's adverse experiences. Mentors must be at least 21 years of age. Mentors must be able tomake a two year commitment, spending at least 8 hours every month with their mentee and participating in monthly group outings at least once every quarter. We have several boys on our waiting list who are in need of a positive male influence in their lives. Sign up today! Training coming soon in spring 2016.
