Generations uses volunteers for different activities. To help their comfort level and ensure our rules are understood with the reasons behind them, we are asking all volunteers to take a "Volunteer Training" session. This will ensure for a more comfortable and safe time with the residents for all.
Our next overview/training will be Monday, March 17, 2014. The overview will be at 5:45 pm - 6:30 pm and the Volunteer Training will be at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm. The training will be held at Brookwood Church, 580 Brookwood Point Place, Simpsonville.
Please confirm attendance with Pat Wilbanks and complete the Volunteer Information Sheet if you are interested in attending. If you have a group of 10 or more, and would like to schedule a separate training just for your group, let us know!
If you have time and want to make a real difference, please consider joining our Volunteer Committee and help plan and facilitate activities throughout the year. We meet quarterly and have a great time brainstorming new ways to help promote Generations and to help our boys get the most out of their time in our program. Help plan and coordinate activities for our boys! Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 1, 2014, at 6:30 pm at the Fountain Inn Library. For more details, please contact Pat or call 864-243-5557 #274.
Volunteer Visitors Program
Sometimes it's the time we give that means the most. The purpose of Volunteer Visitors is to provide opportunities for members of the community to come to our campus and spend some much appreciated time with a resident who does not receive many visits from his family due to the distance they must travel, or who may not even have much family involvement at all. Volunteering is easy - just start by making that first contact!
Host a STAR Party
Each Friday Generations has a party! All our boys who have earned this party, based on behavior through the week, will attend. This is an excellent opportunity for your group to come and spend 2 hours with the boys in a fun and interactive activity. Some favorite things have been karaoke, bingo, sports competitions, and/or pizza & a movie. It can include a meal, or just an activity with a treat and beverage. If you would like to schedule a STAR Party or would like more information, please contact Pat Wilbanks.
Speakers are requested for events like Black History Month, Fire Prevention Month, etc. Or, if you have a topic of interest and can give us a few hours of your time, please let us know. We are always looking to expand our boys’ knowledge in any way possible.
