At Fathers & Families Support Center (FFSC), you are more than ‘just a volunteer’- you are a member of our team and an essential part of improving outcomes for children through supporting Responsible Fatherhood. There are many ways to get involved, and we look forward to having you join our FFSC Family!
Mentor a Father in Transition
What does a mentor to a father do?
Mentors usually have face-to-face visits with their mentees at least once a month and sometimes as frequently as once a week. No-cost mentor training is available through a partnership between Fathers & Families Support Center and the Missouri Department of Corrections Transition Center of St. Louis. You will be supported and trained by a team of veteran professionals who truly appreciate your time and efforts in making a difference in the lives of fathers in transition.
