CHILD MENTOR SUPERHERO | After School Enrichment


If you are looking for a rewarding on going volunteer opportunity where you can make a difference in a child’s day our After School Enrichment Program is for you!  Our Child Mentor Superheroes help children staying in our Short Term Housing Apartments (STFA) with homework and provide activities that encourage independence and self- expression.

For children experiencing trauma, consistency is important.  We ask that volunteers commit to at least one semester (Feb-June) to ensure that we can continue to provide a fun, safe environment families in our program can depend on.  This is a rewarding opportunity where you can watch a child grow and thrive.

This opportunity is available every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-5:30pm.  More days may be added based on volunteer commitment.  Occupancy is unpredictable in our Shor-term Family Apartments and volunteers must be flexible with age groups and levels of participation.  Volunteers must complete our orientation and have all required documentation on file including a background check before they can start volunteering.

If you are the perfect person for this opportunity there are two steps to get involved:

1. Make sure you have completed the process to become a Families Together Volunteer.  All volunteers have to go through a vetting process that includes a criminal background check.  For more information or to receive a Volunteer Start-up Packet please email volunteer@plmft.org

2. Once you are an approved PLMFT Volunteer, use the sign up below to let us know you’ll be there!
