Youth Mentoring Matters!

About

Would you like to positively impact the life of a teenager in foster care? Do you have just a little extra time in your weekly schedule? Community Partnership for Children is the contracted provider for foster care and dependency services in Volusia, Flagler, and Putnam counties. Our volunteer program trains, then matches, qualified mentors to teenage youth placed in foster or group homes.

What’s required? We ask that our mentors commit to working with their matched youth for at least one hour per week for a minimum of three months. Volunteer mentors attend an orientation, subsequent training, participate in a drug & background screening process, which is no cost to the mentor. Mentors must be 21 years of age or older, have a valid driver’s license, reliable transportation, and current car insurance with 100,000/300,000 Bodily Injury Liability Coverage.

Please contact Ashley Soucier, Mentor Services Coordinator, at 386.254.3905 or Ashley.Soucier@cbcvf.org , for more information or to schedule to attend an orientation.
