New volunteering opportunity with Foróige

Foroige

Foróige National Youth Development Organisation is currently recruiting volunteers to take part in The Big Brother Big Sister Youth Mentoring Programme in Sligo and Leitrim. This programme, funded by The Dormant Accounts Fund is working specifically with young people with autism.

The programme matches a trained adult volunteer with a young person with autism who would benefit from having a mentor in their lives.

The volunteer will be facilitated to establish a supportive relationship with the young person, aimed at assisting them in their development. We need male and female volunteers. There is a commitment of a weekly meeting with the young person for about an hour or two over the course of one year.

Big Brothers Big Sisters nationally and internationally is proven through research to improve young people’s wellbeing, improve their social support and relationships with others.

If you would like to hear more about this volunteering opportunity contact Elaine on 086 0497089 or by email Elaine.granaghan@foroige.ie
