Mentor 12-year-old refugee youth from El Salvador in Gaylord
Bethany Christian Services
We are look for a male (preferably Spanish-speaking) volunteer to mentor a 12-year-old boy in our refugee foster care program. This youth is from El Salvador, and he has been in Bethany's program since October of 2016. The youth is currently living in a residential group home in Gaylord. He was in a foster home for over two years before this placement. His case manager is seeking additional support and companionship for the youth.

Bethany demonstrates the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting children, empowering youth, and strengthening families through quality social services.
For refugees fleeing danger, the search for safety can be extremely challenging. And too often, people become numbers in a system that can feel impossible to navigate. That’s why we guide, protect, advocate for, and support refugees. In the U.S., we offer resettlement and continued support services in strategic locations.
Bethany Christian Services' Refugee and Immigrant Services program encompasses adult and family resettlement as well as refugee foster care for Unaccompanied Children and Unaccompanied Refugee Minors. Our services for unaccompanied refugee youth include case management, counseling, housing (foster homes, group homes, independent living), classes (New Arrival, Life Skills, driver's training), and volunteer mentoring and tutoring.
