Foster children have the same needs as other children – and a few extra. All children need love and affection. They need security in family life and the privilege of being respected as a person. They need the wise, friendly understanding of warm-hearted adults. These are the things that you as a volunteer can give to a foster child who has not experienced this in their home.
Community volunteers provide hundreds of at-risk youth with fun activities and outings at monthly FUNDAYS, while providing a much needed break for the foster parents. For these children and families, our volunteers are our FACES of HOPE, providing role models and the support they need to overcome their abusive past.
Foster Youth Mentoring Programs
The Y Community Service Foster Youth Mentoring program provides academic mentoring, community based mentoring, & monthly "Funday" activities for foster youth between the ages of 6 – 17. You can volunteer in one or more of the programs, and we highly recommend attending a fun day to come and see what our program is all about!! In all of our programs, we provided on-going training, case management, support, and resources throughout the duration of the mentoring relationships.
