It's an opportunity for recent college graduates to come together and serve at one of our Ninety Days of Love sites. In addition to serving our youth, Faith Community members live with other college graduates focused on Christian spirituality and a simple community life style.
Faith Community members dedicate their year to our program's three pillars of servicing our youth with love, community, and prayer. Service takes place in one of our shelter sites, where members work 40 hours a week helping youth get back on a healthy life path.
Members are supported in this ministry by the community they live with: 3- 5 other volunteers, in a home provided by the program, where prayer and spirituality are a big part of their daily lives.
Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center Program currently has over 40 volunteer career coaches, each with 8 individual employment program clients. Our current members are recruiting additional volunteers to expand the reach of the program, with a goal to recruit 100 additional volunteers who we expect to continue providing service beyond the tenure of the Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center members.
Volunteers and staff are expected to support the Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center volunteer recruitment. Volunteer marketing materials have been developed and the program manager is training Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center members on how to recruit and enlist volunteers.
Since the beginning, we have recruited new volunteers through:
- Outreach presentations and networking by Ninety Days of Love Crisis Center members to Foster Care Program posts, career fairs and business organizations.
- Referring youth to other successful youth who have specific skill sets, such as entrepreneurship and college advising.
- Enlisting friends and family members of members to help with workshops outreach and during service days.
- Recruiting former foster care adults and non-foster care adults to assist youth and recently displaced foster youth with housing, food and transportation needs.
- Looking to partner with local agencies, foster care program, homeless organizations, government, business and community leaders who have an active interest in serving.
- Using social media, such as Facebook, to share information about the program and recruit new volunteers.
