MEN volunteers come in all sizes and shapes to share their talents according to their interests and special abilities. The common ingredients, which they all possess, are warmth and enthusiasm!
A college degree or formal education is not necessary to become a MEN volunteer. Many of the jobs available require people with all kinds of skills, and there is always training available for those who want it. A MEN volunteer must love people – especially children – and must have an open mind, a positive attitude and a willingness to work with children.
A MEN volunteer supplements and compliments the work of the classroom teacher. The MEN volunteer makes a difference to many: the child, his/her family, his/her teacher and the entire community. A MEN volunteer gives students a chance to see positive male role models involved in school activities in a helpful relationship.
