Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To provide a positive role model to a child who might not have one. To help build on the child's creativity, social skills, imagination, and intellect with one on one mentoring .
Our program is designed to help build on children's creativity, social skills, imagination, and intellect through one-on-one mentoring. On Saturdays, between noon and 2:00 p.m., our mentors provide tutoring to our program participants to help them with their schoolwork. In addition to educational assistance, our mentors teach children how to deal with stress and anger. We teach youth how to talk things out instead of acting out. We also provide them with the tools necessary to deal with their social surroundings, whether they are in a store, park, or other public place.
The leadership and guidance that our mentors provide is the result of communication and continuous efforts to be a part of that child's life. For instance, when possible and after obtaining parental consent, mentors attend school functions such as graduation or meetings regarding the student's individualized education plan (IEP). That way, we are able to build up the children's self-esteem through encouragement and accomplishment recognition. We speak to program participants on a daily basis and reward the children when they receive good grades or demonstrate good behavior in other ways.
Our program is open to the public, and it focuses on underprivileged children in need of a positive role model. Initially, we hope to help at least six children through our efforts, and we are confident that this number will grow as we increase the number of mentors and volunteers. There are no fees associated with this program, which is administered by our officers and directors through a donation of their services. This program has already commenced and consumes 100% of the organization's time. Our organization, as well as this program, is advertised through word of mouth, the internet www.acryforhelpcorp.org , community bulletin boards, and any materials we send out to individuals. In order to cover our expenses, our program is funded through volunteer services, donations, and fundraising events such as car washes and yard sales. Through the successful implementation of our program, we further our purposes of instructing and training youth for the purpose of developing their life capabilities, of providing relief to the poor, distressed, and underprivileged, and of promoting social welfare and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.
