All of our volunteers must be willing to commit to a minimum of one hour per week, as a "big friend"/ as a buddy for a child or family in A Ripple Effect. These visits usually take place at a child's home. But for now (from March 2020-ongoing), because of COVID19 restrictions, the visits take place on "zoom". (2 teens are signed up per family) To apply as a volunteer, these visits are not optional. It is the core of our program. Some of the additional activities are optional. Please note, we supply the supplies, the ideas, and the schedule. (For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org)
*Please note: We do NOT accept any youth as volunteers in A Ripple Effect if they are not signed up for our signature 'My Big Friend Program'.
