We are currently accepting new applications to volunteer to assist our youth (ages 13-18) while they participate in our Fall 2021 Life Skills for Teens program.
Topics covered are: getting a driver’s license, college or post-secondary education plan, getting a job, rent a room or apartment, buy a car, build and maintain a personal budget, paying or planning for taxes when employed, future family planning (I want to be a mom or dad), plan a trip, vacation or experience, health and fitness, mental health and well-being, any personal achievement.
Volunteers and Mentors will be available to the youth to help, guide and ensure youth interested in a particular topic receive the understanding and help needed to succeed.

The event is from 9 am to Noon but we ask that all volunteers arrive by 8:45.
If you register to volunteer and then cannot attend, we ask that you call us with as much advance notice as possible at 623-428-1592. We need to ensure that we have enough volunteers for the families who register.
Parents place an immense amount of trust in the person or people responsible for caring for their children. It is for that reason that we ask that all participating adults (age 18 and older) have a background check. We can assist you in obtaining a background check. Your cost is $12 and it is valid for two years. Please follow directions below to obtain a background check. If you already have a background check please attach it to this form or email us the copy.
If you volunteered at a past event and already received your background clearance you do not need to get clearance again. We have it on record that you have been verified.
**If you are volunteering and already have a fingerprint clearance card, please upload it to this form.

On behalf of the foster parents, thank you so much for your support!
