A community Friend is a volunteer who provides support to children and adults. Each child or adult is paired with a volunteer who shares the same interests. Parent/caregiver receive a short break while their son/daughter enjoys a community based activity with the volunteer.
Volunteers are needed as mentors to children in our community. There are a number of children waiting for the special friendship and positive role model that a mentor offers. Volunteers are required to be a Big Brother, a Big Sister, a Big Bunch Mentor a Couple Match or an In-School Mentor.
Big Brother Mentors are men of good character, who share three to four hours a week in a mutually enjoyable activity with a boy aged 5 to 18 years who could benefit from a positive male influence and friendship. Outing times are flexible each week which appeals to many different men whose free time varies each week. Planning Outings is easy because you share your interests with a boy. Great care is taken in matching Big and Little Brothers to ensure that they are compatible and share common interests.
