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.
This program matches a child 6 - 17 years of age (Little Sister/Little Brother) with a caring adult (Big Sister/Big Brother) over the age of 18. Matches are encouraged to regularly plan activities that are fun and low cost for one year. Monthly agency sponsored recreational activities are provided and overall support is offered by our experienced caseworkers. Unique opportunities to mentor a child together as a couple or as a female volunteer matched with a young boy are also available in our Couples for Kids Program and Big & Little Buddy Program.
This program requires a minimum time commitment of one year starting anytime throughout the calendar year.
All mentors must be at least 18 years old, require a clean police record check and should have an interest or passion for children and youth.
