Pathways’ Cape Ann Families is seeking men and women to participate in the parent mentor program. This Cape Ann Families Program serves families in the Gloucester/Cape Ann Community. Parent mentors can have a variety of roles, which include enjoying activities together, strengthening confidence and self-esteem, connecting with local resources and creating mutual trust and respect. We are looking for volunteers to participate in our Parent Mentor Training, after which each volunteer will be matched with a parent, beginning a year-long mentorship/friendship. The next five week training will run on Friday afternoons beginning on March 15th. Please contact Hailey Granger, Family Services Coordinator at 978-281-2400 x110 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
