VOLUNTEERS NEEDED to Inspire Possibility with Kids this Fall 2022

Future Possibilities for Kids is looking for volunteers to join our Ready, Set, Goal! program. The RSG! program is a seven-month leadership development program that matches a child between the ages of 9-12 with their own volunteer KidCoach. Through weekly phone calls using a guided Activity Book, the KidCoach supports the child through the process of setting and accomplishing a Goal of Contribution - a goal that benefits the child’s community.


What’s involved?

· Receiving virtual KidCoach training and opportunities to participate in skill-development workshops throughout the program.

· Being matched/paired with a Kid in the program.

· Having 30+ minute weekly phone calls or video calls with your matched Kid, following along the program curriculum (Activity Book).

· Completing a check-In report after each call to check your progress, as part of a reflective practice and to communicate for follow-up & support.
