IMPACT: Mentoring/Counseling



Mentor:

Mentors are susceptive to meeting with the assigned mentee or small group of mentees for agreed-upon time. Most importantly, serve as an example/role model and act as a resource. Mentors must accept and relate to youth who may not share the volunteer’s lifestyle and values. Overall, they have to respect the mentee’s right to self-determination and independence. Mentor Wednesdays brings youth and mentors together to share life stories, college/career experiences and insight, and participate in IMPACT Family Dinner.



“I AM Beautiful” & “Men Stand Out!” Clubs:

Teen males and females participate in mentoring clubs, and are involved in personal development, life skills training, planning a successful future, community service projects, relationship building, and social etiquette in order to better prepare them to become productive men and women in the 21st century. This program culminates with an annual Cotillion & Scholarship Gala to celebrate the teens' accomplishments and to promote academic achievement. The gala is usually the second or third Sunday of July at 4 p.m.



Counseling/Social Work:

Experienced students or professionals with counseling and/or social work experience are needed to conduct assessments, observations, counseling sessions (one-on-one/small group), case management tasks, and other related tasks for the youth and families at IMPACT.

Application Process

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with IMPACT Family Center! We believe that interns/volunteers play an integral part in our mission to IMPACT the community…one life at a time.



ALL volunteers must complete an IMPACT Volunteer Application, background check (DCFS and Illinois Police/FBI Fingerprints), National Sex Offender Registry, and possible other checks according to our funders’ requirements. A copy of your state I.D. and passport (if you are not a citizen) are also required.
