John Howard Society Parksville Volunteer Information
JHSNI is actively seeking volunteers for our KidStart mentoring program. Mentoring is an enjoyable, positive, and meaningful volunteer opportunity to connect with a child. It simply means spending three fun recreational hours per week with one of our community’s kids (ages 6-18), and can be done by adults age 19 and over. KidStart opens doors for children and youth who are experiencing challenges in their lives. Mentoring is a fabulous opportunity to gain highly transferable skills in the social service sector. Volunteers receive ongoing support and training to guide them in their mentor role. The John Howard Society of NorthIsland is currently seeking KidStart mentors in Campbell River and the ComoxValley.
