Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all face-to-face visits to the children served by this nonprofit have been suspended. In order to continue conducting child developmental and youth empowerment activities, the nonprofit has made it possible to virtually visit and connect with the children in their care. In this experience, you will be acting as an Uncle or Auntie for this nonprofit's young beneficiaries, whose ages range from 3 to 20 years.
Through these virtual visits, the nonprofit aims to develop the social and communication skills of their children and youth by introducing them to Uncles and Aunties who support their needs. Volunteers will also be able to get to know the nonprofit's programs as they interact with the children and families.
