Description of Organization:
Sunday Friends empowers families to break the generational cycle of poverty by fostering positive development in children while educating and guiding parents to support their children’s life success.
Bnai Mitzvah Projects or Volunteer Opportunities offered by the organization for children ages 11 - 13:
Volunteers are Teachers and Role Models.
Your job is to assist children in contributing to the project, even if it means that the progress is slowed or the quality is lessened. You are there to help the children be successful. You are also there to share fun and laughter.
When a child comes to your station, be sure to engage him/her in the activity right away. Hand the child a paintbrush or potato peeler or another tool used for that project. Give him/her a choice: “What color do you want to start with?” Help them expand their thoughts, ideas, knowledge, and creativity.
At all times, please remember that the quality of your interactions and the behaviors and attitudes you model are more important than anything Sunday Friends may produce. While they love to create delicious food and dazzling art, they are there primarily to teach.
