Gulf Coast Community Care needs volunteers age 30 and older for its mentoring program. Volunteers are matched with children from single parent homes who need adult companionship. Many of the children are in foster care or live with a single mother who is going to school and working. There is a special need for volunteers for children ages 10 to 14.
Volunteers give the gift of time to one child and are provided social events and support by agency staff. No experience is necessary. There are no costs. Volunteers spend a few hours a week in simple activities such as reading, fishing, baking, teaching a craft or visiting a park with a child. There are 60 children throughout Pinellas waiting for mentors! Laugh with a child!
To learn how you can make a lasting difference in the life of a child, call Nancy at 479-1813 or Beverly at 479-1841.
