In its continuing efforts to garner over 200 volunteers over the next few weeks, The Mirrors Programme is launching an Island wide appeal for those who are willing to donate their time to help a young person in Bermuda realize their goals.
“We are looking for male and female volunteers, aged 21 and older, who are willing to give as little as 30 minutes a week to a young person,” says Volunteer Enrolment Manager Carla Zuill.
“To date, over 400 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 have benefitted from the Mirrors Programme but in large part we would not have been able to do this without the assistance and commitment of our volunteers.”
Volunteers are being sought in two major areas, added Ms Zuill: “We are looking for 100 volunteers for our Coaching For Success programme, which is based at The Whitney Institute and Sandy’s Secondary Middle School, along with volunteers for our Youth Enrolment, 6-Day Residential and Committed Partner components. They each have different time commitments and training will be given in all areas prior to commencement.”
She concluded: “I hope our Island residents offer their unwavering support in order for us to continue to make a difference in young people’s lives. Weekly orientations are held in our boardroom Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 p.m. and we are also able to hold them at your establishment upon request.”
A spokesperson said, “The Mirrors Programme was established in 2007 as the Government’s response to the increase in anti-social behaviour which was being displayed by Bermuda’s youth. However, as the programme evolved, it was discovered that it was a personal development programme capable of supporting all people in Bermuda.”
