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.
Requirements: 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 a face-to-face orientation, participate in drug/background screening, complete three online DCF trainings, and one final face-to-face mentor training, all of 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 Pamela Gilbert, Youth Advocate, at (386) 238-4900 or firstname.lastname@example.org , for more information or to schedule to attend an orientation.
