In life many of us can reflect back to a time where someone impacted our life in a profound way. The guidance that a
young person receives from a mentor can have a lasting
affect on how they see themselves and the world.
Mentoring is a process where the elder passes on
experiences, lessons and information to the
younger. This relationship is special
and important, because it teaches
our youth how to build trust
and gives them a role
model to look up to.
SOS Study Buddies are caring volunteers who offer an hour after school to help our boys and girls with their homework. Sometimes
all it takes is a kind and patient person to encourage
our children to stay on task and complete their
assignments. Each of our children receives
tutoring twice a week, and
your volunteer time
fills the gaps.
Every child deserves to be celebrated on their special day. This means, gifts, decorations, cake and fun. With a simple act of kindness,
a shiny new toy and birthday cake goes a long way.

MAKE A BIRTHDAY WISH
You can help assure that all of our children have transportation to after school activities, family visits, etc.
If you are interested in being a transportation assistant, you will need to take our online van driver safety training course.
Our transportation needs range from after
school, to nights, to weekends.
Each of the children living at SOS receives formal and informal independent living skills training. In addition to following a curriculum of classes, we try and supplement that with
real-life experience from our volunteers. So if you
are a banker that could teach our teens about
budgeting, or a tailor that wants to teach
a sewing class, we can find the
right opportunity for you.
A PATH TO THE FUTURE
We need volunteers with experience in the areas listed.
We are looking for people to hold classes to help children
develop their talents, life skills and enrichment activities.
Enjoy the wonderful feeling of passing on your
knowledge to our future generations.
