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.
The volunteer for this opportunity must be MALE, as the mentoring program is based on same-gender matches.
This youth fled violence his family experienced in Guinea. He was separated from his parents and has not had contact with them. It is unknown where they are or if they are alive. He fled to Morocco and lived there a couple years. He arrived at one of Bethany's group homes on 3/28/2018. He has very limited English abilities and his primary language is French. A mentor would be beneficial in helping his transition to life in the United States as a friend and support. A French-speaking volunteer will be prioritized.
