Native Community Volunteers

Native volunteers are the bridge to the communities we serve. Find out how you can get involved.

Tribal Volunteers - Serving Their Communities

Over 180 community volunteers deliver the Futures for Children programs in the 61 communities we serve. Project Coaches (Youth Leadership), Friendship Volunteers (Mentorship), and Facilitators (Families in Action) work with students and families to increase the educational support of their students. The dedication and energy of our volunteers empowers and inspires our students and their families to strive for educational achievement.

What are the qualifications for becoming a volunteer?

Each volunteer must receive FFC training for the program they will be overseeing. Each volunteer has specific requirements and tasks to fulfill, these are defined during the time of training. In addition, a volunteer must live and/or work in our current service area.

How can I become a volunteer?

What type of volunteer opportunities does Futures for Children offer?

FFC offers volunteer opportunities for people in various tribal communities throughout New Mexico, Arizona, and Oklahoma. Volunteers implement and lead FFC programming within their communities. There are three categories of volunteers: Friendship Volunteers, Youth Leadership Project Coaches, and Families in Action Facilitators.

Friendship Volunteers advance and manage our Friendship/Mentorship Program within the community they serve, overseeing the students who participate in this program.

Youth Leadership Project Coaches work to promote our Youth Leadership Program, implementing the FFC Youth Leadership curriculum within the structure of group meetings to guide students in their roles as community leaders.

Families in Action Facilitators devote their efforts to working with adults in their communities, including parents, grandparents, and extended family members as support for their children’s education.
