About

Catholic Charities For Worth's International Foster Care programs provide safe, nurturing, culturally senstive foster care for unaccompanied minors. These children are refugees, asylees and other unaccompanied children who have come to the United States feeling perseution in their home country. As teenagers and young adults preparing to age-out of foster care, these youth need caring adults to help them learn and practice skills necessary for cultural acquisition and self-sufficiency. The life skills could be, but not limited to, practicing English, teaching how to bank and write checks, how to create a budget and manage finances, how to fill out job applications, practicing social skills, improving relationships, discussing school issues, hobbies, etc.

This is a long-term, but very rewarding volunteer opportunity. Volunteers are asked to commit to mentoring a youth for one year, and are to have contact with their mentee several times/month. Bilingual, Spanish Speaking, mentors are highly needed right now, but bilingual is not required.
