Family services agency needs volunteers

Child & Family Services of Newport County is looking for a tutor for a female high school senior who needs help with history and English. She would be available after school or early evenings on Mondays or Wednesdays.

Friendly Visitors are needed to visit the homebound elderly on a regular basis. Volunteers might chat, read, play cards, or take their elder for a ride. However, the most important consideration is to be a good listener. Hours are flexible, and a one year commitment is preferred.

The Agency Child Care program is looking for volunteers ages 14 and older who like working with pre-school children. This is a great opportunity for young men and women to have a good time while gaining childcare experience or for grandparents whose children live far away. Help is needed weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Scheduling is flexible, but all volunteers must make a weekly commitment.
