Arizonans for Children has many volunteer opportunities but a specific need for volunteers to be Mentors for school age children in the foster care system.
There are currently over 16,000 children in foster care in the state of Arizona and nearly 11,000 children in Maricopa County alone. Many who struggle with self esteem and academic set backs. For as little as 8 hours a month, our Mentors help one of these abused, neglected or abandoned children in foster care to improve their outcomes both academically and personally.
Arizonas for Children's Tutor/Mentor Program offers full training, background checks and support to our Tutor/Mentors.
Tutor/Mentors commit to a minimum one year relationship with a school aged foster child, ages 5-18, to assist that child with academics and personal development.
By joining the social network of community members who care about a youth, the Tutor/Mentor can help that youth develop and reach positive academic, career and personal goals.
The commitment is not limited to one year and a long-term relationship is encouraged and supported.
Our central location is 1112 W. Camelback Rd. Phoenix Arizona 85013. We have other locations throughout the valley.
- Training Provided
