Make a Difference with Metropolitan Family Service

Metropolitan Family Service (MFS) is seeking New Mentors and Education Professionals to be part of exciting new mentoring opportunities in Gresham. Children in the Gresham area will benefit from expanded mentoring programs as MFS will establish inter-generational programs at several schools in the Gresham- Barlow school district. Here’s the detail:

"FACE to FACE" MENTORING

The Face to Face project will rely on your skills and experience to help students become more successful in their lives and at school. Mentors are matched with 5th grade students to provide social, emotional and academic support during the school day. Volunteers will meet with students at various times during the school day and will work with MFS and school staff to maximize their positive impact. MFS also has opportunities for professionals and engaged community members to serve on the steering committee for the project.

FOSTER GRANDPARENTS

Older adult volunteers act as positive role models in public schools, childcare programs, and hospitals. Volunteers on a limited income can earn a modest stipend, serving 15+ hours per week, while children receive individual attention from a caring, dedicated adult. Volunteers must be 60+ and meet income guidelines. Volunteers are screened, including interview, references, and background check.

For more information, or to volunteer, please contact the program coordinator, Brendon Bassett, at 503-970-8409 or [email protected]
