Volunteer Mentorship Program

Why be a volunteer mentor? You have the chance to give something back to the community and make a positive impact in the lives of those around you. It also provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Volunteers play a vital role in the every day workings of the Foster Family Coalition and the impact that we have in our community.

 

The FFC runs a volunteer mentorship program, similar to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Volunteers are connected with a child or a youth between the ages of 5 to 29, and meet with them regularly. Through this program, volunteers are able to develop a meaningful and supportive relationship with children and youth. The positive impact that a volunteer mentor can create in the life of a child or youth is very big!
