Volunteer Supervisors Wanted

January 17, 2010 permalink

Hey teenagers! Do you want practice bossing adults around? Once you are 18, you can volunteer to help Durham Children's Services. You get to tell parents that they are not allowed to question their children about new bruises. You will also have to stop parents who try to say they love their children. Sorry, Children's Services is too cheap to pay for this work.

DURHAM -- Volunteers are needed to supervise visits between children affected by separation or divorce, and their non-custodial parents, as part of the Durham Supervised Access Program.

The program aims to help children and parents build and maintain relationships in a safe, neutral, group setting.

Volunteers must be 18 or older, enjoy working with children and be empathetic to the needs of separated or divorced families.

Visits are two hours in length and take place in Oshawa on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Ongoing training is available to all volunteers, and the amount of time volunteered can be tailored to each person's schedule.

For more information, call 905-619-4565 ext. 318.
