Who are our volunteers?iStock_000008794465XSmall
  • People who care about the futures of children and youth
  • People who want to make a difference
  • People who want to share their time and experiences
  • People who want to have fun and learn about themselves and others
  • Our volunteers are not expected to provide for their mentees in the same way as a parent or caregiver.

Your Role

  • Build a special friendship with a young person and have fun together.
  • Talk, listen, support, guide, encourage – believe in them and help them believe in themselves.
  • Keep others informed about what you’re doing.
  • Keep in touch with your staff contact person and ask questions as they arise.  (We also really like hearing about your experiences!)
  • Provide a safe, responsible environment for the child in your care.

Our Role

  • Work with you to match you with a young person or program where your interests and availability are considered.
  • Assign a direct contact person and establish expectations and follow up requirements.
  • Provide orientation and training so you know what to expect.
  • Help you be successful.
