Research has shown that one caring adult can make a real difference in a child's life just by visiting regularly. This is a school-based mentoring program: 1 hour. Once a week. For the duration of the school year.
Mentor volunteers may tutor, connect students to strengthening resources, advocate for the student within the school structure, and sometimes are just there to listen and provide support. There is a particular need for male volunteers at this opportunity to mentor high school boys.
Training is provided: background check required. IMPORTANT: Please include your phone number in addition to your email when inquiring about this opportunity so an organization representative can contact you directly.
Hands On Newton's Vision : Every Newton County citizen is able to participate in meaningful volunteer service according to each one’s talents and interests to build a better community. Hands On Newton's Mission : Hands On Newton engages and empowers people of all ages in volunteer service through partnerships with local organizations and visionaries.
Hands On Newton (HON) was established in 2007 as a program of the Newton County Community Partnership-A Family Connection Collaborative (NCCP) to foster volunteer service and civic engagement that address issues resulting from Newton County’s sudden and rapid population growth. Our choice to use the Hands On model ensures effective volunteer management.
HON has diversified and expanded Newton County’s volunteer workforce through one-time and ongoing service projects and service to other nonprofits. Volunteers participate individually, with their families, or with a group; HON actively collaborates with other community organizations and for-profits to create large-scale or long-term projects such as community gardens.
