BECOME A MENTOR
Mentors are committed to providing friendship and encouragement to a client on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for one or more hours. The length of commitment should be a minimum of 6 months.
Some Mentor Volunteer Possibilities:
- Skills-based Instruction
- Instrument Lessons
- Singing Lessons
- Spending time on campus
- Taking small trips
- Art projects and activities
For safety purposes, mentors must be 21 years old and willing to submit to a background check (child welfare & criminal) and fingerprinting through the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services. If visits will include transporting a youth, driving records must be checked for transporting clearance and proof of insurance must be on file with the agency.
“Although Spero Family Services is a faith-based agency, programs are open and available to anyone fitting the service criteria without discrimination and regardless of faith or denominational background.”
