Imagine how meaningful a few hours of your week could be to a child or teen affected by the challenges of HIV & AIDS.
Our mentor program matches individual adult volunteers with a child or a teen that has HIV or AIDS in their life. This relationship provides healthy, compassionate and consistent interaction with a caring adult. The role of the mentor is to be a loving friend. The schedule is flexible.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE! BRING A SMILE! CHANGE A LIFE!
We ask our mentors to be a support person, confidant, and explorer with their match.
Mentors spend 4 to 5 hours a week with their young friend doing a variety of activities. The commitment is 4 hours a week for a year with the hope that the relationship will last a lifetime.
Applicants must complete a Volunteer Application, be interviewed, pass background checks and attend a two day training.
