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.
We are looking for motivated volunteers to work with children and youth from 0 to 25 years old for our 5 support groups. We provide support groups for youth witnesses of domestic violence. We ask for 3 hours every Wednesday night from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and a couple of hours for volunteer training. A commitment of 6 months is necessary to guarantee consistency with the youth/children we work with.
Spanish language is not required but bilingual volunteers are a plus. Students or professionals with backgrounds in Psychology, Social Work, Sociology are also plus but not required. A criminal background check is required.
