The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our court appointed advocate volunteers are a diverse group of men and women bringing to the table a variety of life experiences, professions, education levels and backgrounds. Are you the volunteer we're looking for? If you are a proactive communicator who is willing to commit to a child, you are! If you can spare an average of 2-5 hours a week and are at least 21 years of age, you are. We need both men and women of every culture, but African American, Hispanic, bilingual in English and Spanish and male role models are in especially short supply. Please come learn more about volunteering at one of our convenient orientations. Click here to view a schedule and to rsvp.
