Volunteer together with your family Transform lives of a family in crisis
We invite your family to turn compassion into action by volunteering together to mentor a family in crisis with the purpose of modelling healthy family dynamics, reducing social isolation, and fostering a space that promotes joy.
A mentor family will support a mentee family by building a trusting friendship with the mentee family. This will serve as the foundation for a non-judgemental, safe, and warm companionship, opportunity to exhibit positive family dynamics, and celebrate together the mentee’s accomplishment, big or small.
Your family’s commitment to this role is only a minimum of six(6) hours per month for eight months, however, the friendship it imparts has significant impacts on the life of a mentee family.
We seek coupled families(nuclear families) and single-parent families with children under the age of 25 in order to match you with one of our mentee families who also has children. We will attempt to match a family whose make-up is similar to yours. We encourage families from all backgrounds and cultures to apply. YSM Family Services is also currently working closely with Afro-Centric families who experience particular unique challenges and are in crisis.
There will be a screening process and training that your family will go through that will build your family’s confidence and effectiveness as mentors.
Timing is flexible and is based according to your and the mentee family’s availability.
