Adult Advisor

Opportunities

In an effort to improve our programs, not burn out our current advisors, and be able to expand our programming, we are always looking for more advisors: parents, college students, retirees, and those who just enjoy children and are looking for a unique mentoring opportunity.

Below is a list of our most common opportunities for our outreach program.  If any of these interest you or if you are interested in participating in a youth committee, school club or Hands4Hope event, please email us at info@hands4hopeyouth.org.

 

GVCC Saturday Cafe
 

Green Valley Community Church is one of the largest El Dorado County food distribution points. The church serves between 150-300 people every Saturday, preparing and serving them a warm meal while they wait to go through the grocery food line. There is also a clothes closet where people can shop for free. Hands4Hope volunteers help distribute food, run carts, bag clothes, serve the meal, clear tables, etc. All age youth are welcome to participate in this outreach. Elementary age youth must have a parent or adult volunteering with them.

The Adult Lead watches over our youth volunteers to make sure they are safe and helpful.  

When: 2nd and 4th Saturdays, 8am - 11am

Level of commitment: At least once every other month for three to six months

 
GVCC Kid's oasis

The Kid’s Oasis is cooperative effort between GVCC and Hands4Hope. It is a safe place for the children of the Saturday Café clients to go while their parents wait & go through the grocery line (which can sometimes take 2 hours) and shop for clothes. H4H youth volunteers play with the kids, read, do crafts, etc.  Middle and high school youth are welcome to participate in this outreach. Elementary age youth must have a parent or adult volunteering with them as the adult lead.

There are usually 2 to 3 families living there at a time with children ages around 2 to 10.
