Mentor a Local Mom: Spanish-Speaking Volunteers Greatly Needed!
Great for
Individuals
Seniors (50+)
Project Description

The Naomi Project, a program of Britepaths, needs volunteers to mentor at-risk pregnant or newly parenting women in Northern Virginia for a year or longer as appropriate. We have a very great need for Biligual volunteers who speak English and Spanish fluently!

The next new Mentor Training is Saturday, May 19, 2018.

After participating in the required training session, mentors are matched in one-on-one mentoring relationships with at-risk pregnant and newly parenting women. The Naomi Project makes a commitment to be with the women referred to the program until their children reach the age of three.

The training is a half day, and begins with registration and light refreshments at 8:30 a.m. The training concludes around 1:30 p.m. Refreshments are provided. Training sessions include an overview of the Naomi Project, what it means to be a Naomi Project mentor, presentations by active mentors and Area Coordinators, and a discussion about resources and developing the mentor-client relationship.

To become a mentor, you must complete the volunteer application and attend the training. Access the application here: https://britepaths.org/node/95

Please email your application and to Laura Greenspan at NaomiProject@outlook.com, or mail it to Jill Beres, Britepaths, 4080 Chain Bridge Road, 2nd Floor. If you have any questions, contact Jill Beres at jberes@britepaths.org or 703.273.8829.

Training class sizes are limited, and preference is given to those who have registered in advance. Recent sessions have been full and we have had to start a waiting list; please do not put off registration!
