Mentoring with Volunteers of America–Oklahoma

November 14, 2009

Hi, all,

I’m going to be volunteering as a mentor with Volunteers of America’s Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents program.  Filling out an application is the first step, and that’s what I’m doing today.  If you’d be interested in participating, here are the details:

Location: Tulsa Metro Area
Date/Time Commitment: Visit at least hour per week with a child.
Children between the ages of 4 and 15 will be matched with a mentor who shares similar interests.

Just follow the link above for more information at the website.  There are other volunteering opportunities available, such as the Supportive Housing program and the Caring Companions.  If you are interested, I was thinking that I’d like to coordinate some group activities for mentors and kids (like park visits, craft sessions, group games, homework help time, etc.).  Contact me if you are interested, or just leave it in a comment!

Best,
Beamish
