Volunteers to mentor 5-16 year old boys and girls. Volunteers dedicate 2 hours a week or 8 hours a month, for one year. Volunteers select the activity 3 out of the 4 weeks, with the 4th week being a group activity planned by the Volunteer Center for all Big and Little Buddies. Activities do not need to involve money, it can be going to the beach, the library, the park, the grocery store. The idea is to show the little buddy there is more to life then they are presently seeing. We need mentors immediately.

Mission Statement

The CFVC's mission is match volunteers and agencies with service opportunities in Southeastern NC. We also provide direct and indirect services, including the Big Buddy Program (mentoring for at risk youth), free home repair (Reach the Beach), Kids Voting (mock voting for youth 5-18), Community Service, and National Days of Service opportunities.


The CVFC was formed in 1997 to mobilize volunteers and resources to identify and deliver creative, effective solutions to community needs by volunteers. The CVFC was founded in the wake of Hurricane Fran. The need addressed by the CVFC is that of providing support for non-profit organizations, community events and initiatives through the effective recruitment, training, referral and stewardship of volunteers and directors of volunteers, as well as planning programs and/or collaborations. In order to keep the VC running and meeting the needs of the community agencies it needs funding. The CFVC makes those matches for individuals, corporations, schools, and churches. We register the volunteers and then place them with the agency that best suits their time and availability. We are the place that the schools turn to find community service opportunities for their youth;
