Volunteer Information and Opportunities:

  • In-Home Volunteer Mentors

    The Parent Resource Center’s In-Home Mentoring Program continues to be “the heartbeat” of the Center. These dedicated community volunteers are recruited, screened and complete an 11-week training program. Volunteers serve in one or more of the following capacities:
    • In-home/hospital support for first time mothers during labor and delivery
      Pregnant young mothers are matched with specially trained and closely supervised volunteers. These volunteers act as advocates during pregnancy, labor coaches during delivery and provide daily intensive in-home emotional and educational support following the birth of the baby.

    • In-home mentors to high risk families, both teens and adults
      These volunteers work one-on-one with families to reinforce the information that is presented parenting classes, offer emotional support, act as role models and become a positive influence in their lives. Volunteers provide a minimum of 1-hour visits weekly in the home to work on positive parenting, to interact with the parent regarding issues to strengthen the family and additional topics surrounding:

      • Self-esteem building
      • Goal setting
      • Problem solving
      • Stress management
      • Non-violent discipline
      • Positive parenting
      • Developing a positive social support system
      • Accessing community resources

Other Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Childcare Assistants:

    During the 2 hour parenting education classes, the Center offers on-site childcare. Often a barrier to families receiving services is the absence of reliable childcare. Providing this service allows the parents to attend class by removing this barrier, thus creating a positive environment for learning. Childcare is provided by a well-trained staff and includes a parent/child interaction session at the beginning of each class. Volunteer childcare assistants are necessary for the success of this program, which allows increased one-on-one interaction between the child and the assistant. Adults and teens who love to work with young children in a nurturing environment are encouraged to volunteer in childcare at the Parent Resource Center!

    • medical professionals
    • education
    • community agencies
    • financial institutions
    • employment training
    • career opportunities
