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:
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.
