The Essex County Diversion Program is currently seeking responsible, committed, and community driven individuals who are interested in being a positive and supportive role-model for youth enrolled in the Rebound Life Choices Program. Volunteers can occupy the role of “Lead Coach” or “Table Coach”. Lead Coaches are responsible for facilitating the lesson plan each week and providing the youth with a positive, friendly, and trusting atmosphere conducive to their overall personal growth and development. Table Coaches work directly with the youth and empower and motivate them to set goals, make informed decisions, and learn constructive tools to deal with life challenges. Overall, volunteers are integral to providing a safe and friendly atmosphere, which allows youth to explore positive lifestyle alternatives, examine their behaviour, and identify their strengths. Volunteers will acquire invaluable personal and professional growth for future employment endeavours, obtain new skills, develop community contacts, and receive self-fulfillment by giving back to the community. All prospective volunteers will be required to undergo a volunteer interview, attend a training/orientation workshop, and submit a Criminal Record Check/Vulnerable Sector Check. All interested candidates are encouraged to forward their resume and cover letter to the Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (519) 253-3340 ext. 223.
