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.
Be a mentor for a young parent! We have had an influx of teens interested in our mentoring program and don't have enough mentors to meet the demand. Because these new parents need consistency and stability, we are asking volunteers for a 1-2 year commitment and minimum age of 25.
Mentors meet with teen parents twice monthly, with weekly phone calls. There are also chances to meet and mingle with other mentors and young parents during quarterly group events and gatherings. This is a great opportunity to personally connect with a young parent and make a difference!
FamilyWise is located in Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota and mentors would need to live in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
