Program Volunteers Needed

Rebound is looking for volunteers who are 18+ to assist with our 10-week programs. If you are an adult with a big heart who would enjoy working with youth during our evening programs, this is the opportunity for you.

Program volunteers work with youth ages 8 – 17 one night a week for 10 weeks. These volunteers spend 2.5 – 3 hours per week with youth and provide a supportive atmosphere that allows youth to open up and honestly examine their lives and actions. Program volunteers work directly with the youth and are responsible for engaging youth, encouraging them to participate, and help them with goal setting.

Program volunteers must attend an orientation, provide 2 references, a vulnerable sector police clearance and attend two observation sessions in order to fully participate as a volunteer. Please check out our wide range of programs at www.reboundonline.com to see what we have to offer the youth in our community.
