Every year Ready For Life is blessed with volunteers eager to further the cause of inclusion. Simply put, RFL would not be the organization it is today without the help of its volunteers. However, that is not to say that RFL does not need more volunteers. The saying “too much of a good thing” does not apply to this situation and RFL would love to recruit more volunteers. If you are interested in becoming more involved with RFL, look below to see what you might be interested in and contact RFL via one of the staff or emailing email@example.com
Volunteering can occur in many different areas within RFL which are as follows:
Social Mentors:These people choose to pursue an intentional relationship with those using Ready For Life’s services. RFL acts as a conduit in order to help the social mentor and RFL participant connect. Social mentors can give as much or as little to the relationship as they want, just as any other friendship. The content of the time spent together can be planned by the mentor, or it can be fostered by RFL. Also, in occasions where RFL needs a mentor for a particular situation it may contact its list of social mentors to help out.
Classroom Mentors: These people connect with the Ready For Life Academy students on weekly basis by tutoring them in their classroom. A Classroom mentor provides support for the Ready For Life Academy student with their transition life skill classes or their college course work.
In-Class Mentors: These people support the Ready For Life Academy students in their college classes. The provide in class support by helping the student participate in class. They also help with the communication between the RFLA student, the professor and the RFLA instructor.
