VOLUNTEERS NEEDED before JANUARY 4, 2013 for Ready, Set, Goal! Community Leadership Program
Ready, Set, Goal! is a community leadership program that involves Kids aged 8-14, from diverse, underserved Canadian communities who are matched with trained volunteers called ‘KidCoaches’. In this Kid-led program there are no limits to what Kids can do! Whether they are lobbying with government officials, soliciting support for an animal shelter or collecting supplies for the homeless, Kids are the CHANGE they wish to see in their community!
KidCoaches are trained adult volunteers who support Kids in discovering that they can make a difference in their world, one goal at a time. As a KidCoach, you will have an opportunity to coach and support a Kid as they set out to accomplish a “Goal of Contribution” that positively impacts their community.
1. Weekly phone calls (20-30 minutes) with your Kid over the 3 month program (February-April 2013)
2. Participation in 3 Activity Days (Saturday Feb 2/13, Saturday March 2/13 & Saturday April 13/13)
You will also assist them in gaining new skills and self-confidence as they learn to think boldly, communicate powerfully and act generously. Being a KidCoach, you will receive coaching training and ongoing support from FPK Staff and other experienced KidCoaches. You will have loads of fun too while you develop transferable coaching skills and connect with other like-minded individuals.
If you want to make a difference in your community and in a child’s life, please contact Sarah AbdelAll ASAP at email@example.com .
