Program Services​​

Home​​ 
Visitor

 This is a long-term commitment and requires specialized training within one year of approval of your volunteer application. The home visitor is an integral member of the Samara’s Village team. They are the program facilitator for our Partners for a Healthy Baby Curriculum and the lifeline between the organization and the female participant. Home Visitor volunteers must be willing to take on up to 3 mothers each and must be able to meet with those mothers at least monthly for the duration of their time in the program.   

Fatherhood Mentor

  
This is a long-term commitment and requires specialized training. 24/7 Dad Mentors must possess the desire to help support and educate young fathers. The position requires strong listening and communication skills. The Fatherhood Mentor will implement, direct, instruct, guide, and document individual and/or group meeting with participants.
  

Program Support Services

​​
To fill the role of Village Ambassador, we’re looking for individuals with a strong commitment to Samara’s Village and our mission. Good communication skills are necessary because this is primarily a volunteer public relations position. Our Ambassadors will represent Samara’s Village within a defined area (“territory”) of Brunswick County.
Village Ambassadors will call upon churches, service organizations, OB/GYN doctors and pediatric offices within their assigned territory. Some Ambassadors will be assigned middle and high schools or county services, exclusively. When visiting, the Village Ambassador will introduce or re-introduce Samara’s Village to the locations, drop brochures and discuss the participant referral process.
This volunteer position requires three to four hours per month and a car is necessary. The goal is to consistently promote Samara’s Village monthly at each location and build a relationship. The expected outcomes are an increase in program participants, donor development, and Samara’s Village name recognition.
