Twin Cities MetroMinneapolis, MN 55413


Objective: Provide assistance to a CIP Adult Foster Care (AFC) home by gardening with them at the AFC. Provide support, guidance, and friendliness to individuals who share similar interests.

Responsibilities: Meet with a(n) AFC resident(s) one to two evenings a month, to garden at the AFC. An introductory meeting will take place at the resident’s house so that the resident may meet the volunteer and decide if they are comfortable to go on an outing with them. With staff assistance, the resident and the volunteer will schedule the outing based on their mutual availability. The volunteer will communicate the schedule with the Volunteer Coordinator and then confirm volunteer time/location within the week after performing the activity. We ask that the volunteer call the resident on the day of the outing to remind/confirm that they are meeting that day. If the volunteer does not receive confirmation of the outing from the resident, they may assume that it is not on for that day.
