Volunteers and Mentors are Needed for FCCS Youth
Franklin County Children Services’ volunteers and mentors are everyday heroes in the lives of our youth. Just by spending time with these youth, the volunteers create positive childhood memories that the youth will never forget. Many youth under the care of Children Services also depend on their volunteers or mentors to guide them through difficult times. The 500+ FCCS volunteers and mentors provide one-on-one friendship to youth, donate their time in the Crisis Center or in Holiday Wish, and help children in many other ways. An individual can give support, friendship and guidance to children in the following ways:
Friendship Volunteers – Volunteers who share time and activities on an individual basis twice a month with a child.
Malaika and Simba Mentors – Culturally specific mentoring programs matching African- American adults with African-American children under FCCS care.
College-Bound Mentors – Mentoring program for college-bound youth providing support and assistance with college preparation and ongoing needs.
Crisis Center Volunteers – Volunteers who provide support, activities and supervision at the FCCS Crisis Center.
