Christchurch and South Auckland: Good Role Models Needed! We will train and support you to walk alongside children/youth of prisoners aged 5-18 years. Call now on 0508 PILLARS
To help children of prisoners reach their potential by matching them with caring and supportive volunteer adult mentors. You will be well supported and we have an emergency on call while you are on activities. You must agree to a 12 month commitment.
Welcome to our community - especially those up in Wellington!
We are looking for mentors living in Christchurch or Auckland (hopefully Wellington next).
Are you concerned about kids and their problems? Are you comfortable listening, talking and having fun with young people? Can you commit to spending 2-6 hiours a fortnight for at least a year? WIll you undertake intensive training, agree to a police background check, and provide several references?
If you answered YES to all of the above, we hope you will call. It will be next year before we start our introductory sessions again so please keep an eye on the PILLARS website www.pillars.org.nz
We believe that if every prisoner’s child was matched with a screened and trained volunteer mentor, we could easily halve New Zealand’s raging crime rate by at least 50% within the next 5 years preventing the next generation of 13,000 children from becoming New Zealand’s future generation of criminals.
Warm Regards Verna
