Volunteer mentoring - Parrains par'mille

The Needs

For youth lacking family support, but not extreme situations.

 

THE IDEA

To prevent such problems as social disconnection, family problems, and school difficulties.

Foster familyParrains par' mille is a local volunteer mentoring organisation. Each child is assigned one or two mentors. The concept can be easily duplicated everywhere. It involves:

1/ Creating a local chapter made up of three volunteers (1 manager, 1 treasurer and 1 psychologist).
2/ Finding and briefing mentors and assessing their motivations before they sign the ethics charter.
3/ Having other volunteers monitor the child/mentor relationship.
4/ Helping the child with schoolwork, boosting their self-confidence, encouraging them to make friends and participate in sports, etc.
