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.
We are looking for an empowering and unique individual with any type of disability who wants to not only teach but also learn from the younger generation
Starting in April Easter Seals Massachusetts will be starting a male and female mentoring program. Through one-to-one match relationships, each mentee participant will have the opportunity to develop the skills of self-empowerment and to promote personal achievement and self-identity within a community of other men and women with disabilities
Responsible for meeting with the assigned mentee for the agreed-upon time once per month, in addition to internet/phone communications.
Act as a resource and guide
Work closely with staff through phone contact, group meetings, and outings with the mentee
Serve as an example/role model
Respect the mentee’s right to self-determination and independence
Be a person with any type of disability
Good listening skills
We want our mentors to be committed and by committed we mean...

We want them to be committed to the program
We want mentors who value patience, have great interpersonal skills, and also have a desire to help guide the "next generation"
Having a great sense of humor does not hurt as well
