24 people are interested
A local young adult needs a mentor for community inclusion activities.
He loves music and adapted computers, but due to blindness he cannot drive so he has a difficult time accessing social activities and work opportunities. If you are interested, you will attend community events, concerts, attend movies, go on a short walk, or explore work opportunities by helping him obtain applications and returning them for consideration. This is a great opportunity to spend some time in your community while helping another person.
Requirements to be a great volunteer include:
a desire to help others;
a pleasant demeanor;
a good reading/speaking voice;
average reading skills;
organizational or planning abilities;
a good driving record;
a clear criminal history;
access to a car with proof of insurance;
a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
We'll work with your schedule.
