A few hours per week
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
Soccer Without Borders is looking to match our newcomer (refugee, immigrant, and asylee) families with a volunteer family mentor. A family mentor enters into a long-term relationship (a minimum of 9 months) with a family.The family and mentor spend time together, working on homework and English comprehension as needed. Other activities may include: sharing meals with the family, exchanging cultural values and traditions, helping parents understand bills and other mail, etc. Ultimately, activities will depend upon the needs of the client, the interests of both parties, and the time available.
Family Mentors will connect with SWB staff regarding both successes and challenges relating to the student and his/her family.
