What we are looking for:
The Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut (CGC) is currently seeking volunteers for its Youth, Empowerment, & Support (YES) Mentoring Program. As a YES mentor, you will be serving as a positive role model for an at-risk youth. Youth involved in the YES Mentoring Program are enrolled in CGC's System of Care program and may not have many opportunities to engage in healthy and fun activities. As a YES mentor, you will participate in fun, age-appropriate activities with a child, establishing a positive social relationship.  While you are spending quality time with the child/teen, you're also providing their parent(s) with some much self-care time.   Each YES session lasts 12 weeks, and you will be required to meet with the child/teen for three hours a week. Every mentor will complete a thorough interview, orientation, and background check. The mentor and family will work together to develop a convenient schedule of enjoyable activities for the child.  To volunteer, please contact Sheila Figueroa at (203) 517-3346 or sheila.figueroa@childguidancect.org. 
You either own this opportunity, already applied for this opportunity, or are not registered as a volunteer!
