PRINCETON (WVVA) — The Children’s Home Society of West Virginia in Princeton is currently accepting volunteers for its “We Can” program. The program trains volunteers to be mentors for children in the community. Along with spending quality time with the kids, volunteers provide educational tools and life tips to help each child succeed.
Program coordinator Jenna Miller says members of the program spend a minimum of four hours a month with mentors in order to build strong friendships and characters.
“Our philosophy is that whenever we nurture the self esteem of children, more of society’s problems are eliminated because we have more responsible adults making better decisions, being more effective,” said Miller.
To recommend a child for the program or to become a volunteer, contact the Children’s Home Society of Princeton at 304-431-2424. You can also visit their Facebook page here.
