Ways to be involved in Parent Life:

  • Become a Mentor throughout the 2019/2020 school year. Meetings will be on Thursday nights at First Presbyterian Church located at 1540 M street Fresno, CA 93721. There are also opportunities to be involved in weekly clubs on high school camupses. Mentors should also reach out to mentees to build relationships throughout the week. 
  • Childcare Volunteer. Volunteers needed for the Thursday night meetings so moms and dads can enjoy the meeting. We provide childcare (available to mentors) on site at First Presbyterian Church.
  • Baby Boutique Driver (Once every three months). Drive teens and their babies from First Presbyterian Church to New Covenant Church to do some free shopping in the Baby Boutique. Specific dates for Baby Boutiques are coming soon.
  • Help with special events like field trips, holiday and special occassion parties. If you can drive, decorate, bake treats, help prepare the meal, help assemble Thanksgiving bags, wrap Christmas gifts, etc. this is a "once in a while" opportunity for you to sever and make a difference. 
  • Bake for the Parent Life Bake Sale! Held at New Covenant Church Christmas Boutique on November 16th, from 9am to 3pm.
  • Be a Speaker/Informational Presenter for a Thursday night meeting. This could be spiritual or practical. Some ideas include: getting your finances in order with a budget, resume writing, job soft skills, relationships, love languages, anger management, how to babyproof a house or make sure your car seat is instaled safely, nutrition, cookie decorating, etc. If you think of something else, please let the director know.
  • Provide the weekly meal! This would be a great thing for your church small groups, family or friend group to do. 
  • Camp Volunteer. Join us at Hume Lake for 3 days of Parent Life Camp: March 13-15, 2020.
  • Donate baby clothes/items and diapers. We wil also need winter outerwear for teens and babies/toddlers for camp. 
  • The Pasta Dinner. Volunteer or sell tickets to the camp fundraiser in February.
  • Social media Volunteer. Help out with photos and videos at the events and help keep the social media pages fresh and updated with fun content. 
  • Sponsor special items for camp (backpacks, pens, water bottles, lip balm, etc.).
