Why serve as a volunteer youth mentor?
- 1. Acquire new skills: Any role at CFFS will require a lot of interaction with children, families, and other CFFS providers. Jump in and get your feet wet with boundless opportunities for growth!
- 2. Volunteering shows that you are engaged in your passion: Working with children and families can be challenging sometimes, volunteer experience helps show that you are ready! Children’s Friend is an organization that believes in career pathing, skill development, and employee engagement.
- 3. Maintain your schedule, on your terms: The schedule of commitment is flexible, it is based on mentor availability. Mentors and mentees can meet every other week for 4 hours or every week for 2.
- 4. Improve your LinkedIn profile: Add your volunteer youth mentoring role on your professional account, after a few months of volunteering you can ask program staff to write you a recommendation for the great work you do in the community with your mentee.
- 5. Gain in-depth knowledge about community based youth engagement: The Volunteer Youth Mentoring program is a program part of the larger continuum of care. Volunteers are given training on how to support their mentee in the community...but, the best training will be spending time one-on-one with your mentee!
