What it’s about
Additional volunteer opportunities at the Oliver Hill Mentoring Program include:
Greeter– We want each and every visitor to the OHMP to feel welcomed. A volunteer Greeter will welcome and assist anyone that comes to the Hill house. He/she will also answer the phone, complete some administrative work, and keep track of Bigs and Littles as they come and go.
Attendant– To keep the children engaged and excited throughout their time at the OHMP, we will provide many enrichment opportunities. A volunteer Attendant is needed to assist in these activities. An Attendant’s duties include helping with group projects, organizing arts and crafts, and preparing and distributing snacks.
Tutor- An hour-long homework session will be held at the OHMP site on Mon-Thurs afternoons and volunteers are needed to assist students as they complete assignments. Homework assignments might include practicing spelling words, reading a book, or doing a math worksheet.
Special Interest Presenter- Each week the OHMP hosts a different speaker to present a special skill or interest to the group of Littles. A presenter might discuss his/her career, a unique skill, or an educational topic. A volunteer is asked to give one presentation on four consecutive days (Mon-Thurs).
Ambassador– In order to obtain more volunteers and donations, we need the help of a volunteer Ambassador to educate the community about the OHMP. An ambassador could raise awareness by distributing informational trading cards, hosting an information session at his/her workplace or church, and/or displaying the BBBS poster in his/her office.
