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 could be that person who helps someone aging out of foster care, coming off the streets, or exiting our criminal justice system; just like someone was there for you. Mentors help reduce a person's sense of isolation and can be guide when times are hard. When these powerful relationships are formed, people stay housed, keep jobs, go to school, and stay out of jail. We train you and specially match you up with a mentee. Afterwards, the two of you will spend six hours a month together for a year. There will be events and fundraisers for the pairs to attend; which will include opportunities for you to network with like minded cohorts.
