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.
Adult volunteers are needed at Greater New Britain Teen Pregnancy Prevention Inc.'s Pathways/Senderos Center. It is important for our students to have positive interactions with people from a variety of backgrounds. After school, students come to the Center and receive help with homework and other academic projects. Job training is also a big part of our program and volunteers share advice on obtaining a job and excelling at it. Volunteers will serve as mentors to the students as well as advocates for the program. Once you begin working with Pathways/Senderos, we hope you will be inclined to spread the word about the benefits of the program. Hours for volunteering: Monday through Friday 2:45pm-5:00pm.
