About this Opportunity
YoungLives addresses teen momsâ€™ pressing needs by creating a community that keeps teen moms anchored to a supportive environment, educating and empowering them with life and parenting skills, and mentoring to improve the quality of life for young mothers and their children with the hope of decreasing the high dropout rates of teen moms in NYC. Treating each mom and her child or children with unconditional love and respect, YoungLives offers teen moms relief from the isolation and struggle of their daily lives and hope for the future. Female volunteers assist with monthly club activities, and parenting workshops. Volunteers also mentor girls one-on-one outside of regular group clubs. In order to assist with this club, you'll need to connect and meet with the Young Life staff or HFNY Team Leader. You may be asked to complete leadership training before being able to serve.Because there is a process to getting involved, it may take a few weeks for you to begin volunteering at the club.
