EVERY CHILD DESERVES A FAMILY

MENTOR A CHILD

Global Family relies upon trained and dedicated volunteers to become Mentors, God-Parents, and Guardians for the children in our family care programs. You can mentor a child in one of the following locations:

Bakersfield, USA

Yangon, Myanmar

Delhi, India

Kathmandu, Nepal

CAREGIVER ROLES FOR FAMILY CARE PROGRAMS

The Mentor is matched with one child, preferably of the same gender, and commits to meeting with that child at least once a week at the aftercare facility. The commitment should last until the child is returned back to his/her family, or until the child moves into long-term family care. The goal of creating a relationship between a Mentor and a child is to provide additional rehabilitative support from someone who interacts with them on a volunteer basis. A mentor should only be paired with one child at a time, and can be paired with a child whether he/she is temporarily sheltered in the aftercare program or will be moved into long-term family care. This individual should be recruited and trained within the context of a local/faith-based organization within the community in which the aftercare program exists.
