Volunteer Mentor Training — Summer 2017
August 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Give the Gift of Your Friendship. Be a Mentor.
Last year Freedom a la Cart provided supportive services to over 115 survivors of human trafficking, with 80 of those women participating in CATCH Court. And our CATCH program and partnership continues to grow! The women of CATCH have support from many agencies to help them navigate this new life they are beginning, as well as mentors from Freedom a la Cart to provide life coaching and emotional support. Our mentors show unconditional love and friendship, teach new social norms, and act as a support person. As the program continues to expand, so does the need for dedicated mentor volunteers.
The weekly time commitment to be a mentor is minimal (approximately 2 hours per week) but requires consistency. Mentors are paired with a new participant in the 2-year CATCH Court program, so we ask that you commit 2 years to your relationship with your mentee. You WILL have the opportunity to make an impact in the lives of the women you meet. There may also be opportunities to mentor ladies in our workforce training program who are not participants of CATCH Court. Please note, Freedom a la Cart also requires all mentors/volunteers to obtain a background check. Ready to take the next step? Join us for training!
