25 people are interested
Catholic Charities' Cornerstone Builders programs seeks mentors for children (ages 4-17) who have a parent who is incarcerated. Cornerstone Kids mentoring is a year-long commitment of usually four hours per month at your convenience. Mentors do not have to be Catholic and may also indicate a preferred age range for their mentee.
Mentor will spend time with mentees doing activities chosen by the mentor/mentee...anything from simply getting an ice cream cone or playing board games, to trips to the zoo, museums, or sporting events. There will also be program sponsored events to meet other mentor/mentee pairs and participate in group activities.
Mentors must have a desire to help children, to be able to listen, and be open to dealing with children dealing with difficulties in their home life.
More Details: While our Cornerstone Builders program helps formerly incarcerated persons, we also recognize that children with incarcerated parents need positive, present role models, and that’s why we provide mentors to Cornerstone children. Children with incarcerated parents are six times more likely than other children to become incarcerated without positive intervention. Mentors must complete a training and Catholic Charities Volunteer Orientation
We'll work with your schedule.
