Volunteer Refugee Family Mentor (Spanish speaking)
About this Opportunity
Be a part of a team that supports a Spanish speaking refugee family. BPB assists in family resettlement and relies on volunteer mentors to assist in establishing a community safety net with our families via recurring weekly or monthly visits. The goal of these visits is to establish trust, hope, security, and empowerment in their new home and country. Mentors typically offer between 1 to 10 hours a week and commit to 6+ months.
