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.
YOU can inspire positive change in the life of an youth-in-need. All it takes is your compassion, your ability to have fun, and your desire to share your experience. Friends for Youth is currently seeking adult volunteers to be matched with one child from our list of youth-in-need from all over the Peninsula. Right now, there are over 60 children waiting to be matched with a mentor. That mentor could be YOU! Friends for Youth has been serving youth-in-need residing in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties for 34 years. By providing training and on-going support, it is our goal to find people who wish to be mentors and Friends to the kids in our program. Learn more about this exciting opportunity to become a mentor by visiting us on the web at www.friendsforyouth.org.
