As a volunteer, you add to the network of support we provide for our members. Whether you are a mentor–directly working with our members as they grow and learn, a member of The Friends of The Brotherhood/Sister Sol–planning fundraising events, or an extra pair of hands–assisting with special projects or a guest speaker, we welcome your contribution to our family.
On Monday evenings from 6-7:30pm, adult volunteers pair up with our 8-12 year olds for an evening of fun! Activities include games, recreational and enrichment projects. Mentoring Night is not tutoring or homework help; it is an opportunity to support the growth and development of our children. Mentor-mentee partners create bi-annual projects to present to families and staff. There are also bi-annual Saturday trips.
For our teens, ages 13-18, or recent alumni, ages 18-21, adult meetings with members are more flexible. They may meet monthly, seasonally or commit to allowing a member to shadow or intern. Mentors may provide insight on a specific career or provide guidance as members make the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
These statements become core values each member strives to achieve, and they help members recognize the power of their Chapter to provide unconditional love, guidance and support for them. Members have 24/7 access to their Chapter Leaders, which is essential to building long-term, meaningful bonds.
Guest speakers share their expertise on a range of topics, exposing members to career and college possibilities as well as teaching about an important issue.
We have people who dedicate a day, or several days, to work in the community garden adjacent to our brownstone (planting, landscaping), provide staffing support at special events (registering guests, clean-up) and provide administrative assistance.
