What we are looking for:
Do you care about kids and want to make a difference in someone's life?  The Norwalk Mentor Program of the Human Services Council is looking for caring individuals who will spend just one hour a week at school with a young person.  Following a brief orientation/training, you will be matched with a student in one of the Norwalk Public Schools.  You then meet with your mentee at school once a week for an hour - talking, playing games, reading or enjoying other activities. You become that student's friend, role model, confidante and advocate. As a mentor, you will feel rewarded just seeing the difference you make as the young person you mentor matures and grows to reach his or her full potential. If you're interested in having a positive influence on a child or teen, contact Hannah Knox, Norwalk Mentor Program director at hknox@hscct.org or 203-849-1111 x 3002. Sometimes a mentor is the only caring person in a child's life!
You either own this opportunity, already applied for this opportunity, or are not registered as a volunteer!
