Program Overview: Project TEAM is a unique volunteer based program designed to help families achieve their goals. This family-centered program promotes self sufficiency, stronger families and reduced isolation through mentorship and on-going support. In achieving these goals, we seek to break the cycle of poverty from continuing in the lives of the children in the household and provide a meaningful volunteer opportunity for people who want to give back to their community.
Description of Volunteer Position: As a Project TEAM mentor you will develop a supportive relationship with a family working to achieve self sufficiency. Mentors, together with the Family Development Manager, assist the family in setting and working toward their goals. Your role will be to support, encourage, listen to and help the family in their work. You will be expected to meet with the family a minimum of 4 hours a month and make frequent contacts over the phone. You are also encouraged to develop a relationship with the children in the household. You will have the opportunity to support and receive support from the other team members, including the Family Development Manager, to assist the family.
