Volunteer Opportunities

Mentoring – Every woman in our program is matched with a trained mentor to serve as her personal support and encouragement source. Mentors attend a one-day training on a Saturday then, once matched, they meet with their participant once a week. Written covenants are used to outline the boundaries of these relationships. To get started please complete the online mentoring application or contact us

 

Meals for Class Nights – Every Tuesday and Thursday, before class, groups and/or individuals provide a meal for the ladies.  This is invaluable for the ladies and instructors that come straight from work. This is also a wonderful time of getting to know each other, fellowship and just decompressing after a busy day. Some meal providers sign up for the entire year’s classes and are scheduled for the same night each month.  Others prefer to just provide one or two meals a year. We currently have openings for providing meals on the first Thursday of the month for the 2017-2018 instructional year.

 

Celebrations – Several times throughout the year, we will have celebrations for our ladies when they graduate, meet a goal, or for a holiday. Special treats and prizes are always needed for those celebrations.  We also have a yearly fundraiser that we welcome help in planning and implementing.

 

Prayer – We need a team of people who would commit to pray for our ministry and its participants daily.

 

Instructors – Our volunteer instructors are the backbone of our program. We are constantly looking for new and additional instructors in all subject areas.  The night classes are on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.  We will be offering day classes beginning the 2017-2018 year.  We need instructors that are available during morning hours on Monday and Wednesday.
