About

AGENCY DESCRIPTION:


AFFEC is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) child welfare organization. Our mission is to find loving, permanent families for all waiting foster children. Based in Eugene, Oregon, A Family For Every Child works nationally to ensure foster care is only a temporary solution for any child, as all children have the right to grow up in a loving, supportive, permanent home.

JOB SUMMARY:


A Family For Every Child seeks engaged, passionate volunteers within the Permanency programs. Volunteers in the Mentor program must have a strong dedication to the connection of at-risk young people to caring and dedicated adults. Ideal candidates will have experience in program administration, work well in teams, and have a passion for improving outcomes for at-risk youth.

Volunteers will work in partnership with the Permanency Director to maintain program quality and develop new projects within the program (i.e.- improved wellness surveys, advance check-in systems, etc.). It will be the responsibility of the volunteers/interns to work directly with the Permanency Director to perform administrative work, search for and acquire new sources of donation/funding, and assist in any needs of matches within the program.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Use designated outreach tools to contact mentors and wider community regarding upcoming events or program news.
