Age-Out Angels, a 501c3 non-profit that provides volunteer mentors and coordination of care to vulnerable youth ages 14-24, seeks a volunteer to operate our website. That includes, making copy and layout changes to existing site (www.AgeOutAngels.org), keeping the text on the cover page fresh, setting links to blogs, updating the events page and maintain the link to the donations page. This is a spare-time position that we hope will offer a small stipend at some point in the future. Must be 21 or older and have web references.
Even though this is a job that can be done anywhere, we prefer candidates who reside in Mercer or Burlington counties in New Jersey. Our office is in Columbus, NJ and it is most effective if you can spend some time training at out HQ.
Our mission is to build an army of volunteers with love in their hearts who are willing to be friend and guide to one youth who needs them. Age-Out Angels matches volunteer mentors with youth as they age-out of the foster care system to provide support, friendship, and guidance, thus enabling the youth to evolve into productive members of society. We train volunteers to guide youth toward a path where they can secure shelter, food, clothing, transportation, education, employment and more via programs that are already provided by the state. Unfortunately, many of these programs involves bureaucratic procedures and these youth need help to access these programs and maintain their benefits. The role of the volunteer is simply to help and support. There is NO adoption component to Age-Out Angels.
In 1992, Greg and Robin Rapport adopted their first of two wonderful children. During that process, the Rapports were introduced to the foster care systems. As their own children grew, Greg and Robin saw first-hand the difference that a stable, loving family makes in a child’s life.
The Rapports were particularly disturbed by the potentially horrendous plight of children who age-out of the foster system. They saw that these children often have few, if any, life skills that they can use to their advantage in the real world. Age-out children’s educational skills are frequently far below grade level, making it difficult for them to go to college or maintain meaningful employment. In many cases, these children are simply waiting to be victims. Their fate is frequently homelessness, incarceration, or death.
The Rapports are dedicated to being a positive force in the protection of children who may not have the parental support necessary to avoid the pitfalls that can swallow those who are young, naïve, and easy prey when not properly guided.
