Week night Buddy for a child in foster care

The Salvation Army CARES Program provides a unique volunteer opportunity for individuals who have a heart for children in foster care and/or children who have been adopted. Each child enrolled in the CARES Program is assigned their own personal buddy. The role of the buddy is to provide one-on-one positive nurturing interactions with a foster/adopted child during the organized Kids Connect Club Sessions which occur one evening a week. The buddy serves as a role model for behavior and provides a secure base for the child to explore social, attachment and sensory rich activities. The buddy and child will be crafting, snacking, reading, and playing together as well as participating in group activities focused on learning life lessons such as "accepting no" and "listening and minding." Laughter and joy are utilized to promote a safe nurturing environment. This safety allows the child to learn, explore and create. Volunteers will become trained in Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), an evidenced based intervention to help children from “hard places” heal, regulate, connect, and succeed. The TBRI Buddy will be responsible to facilitate a caring relationship with one child in the Kids Connect Club group with children who have experienced early childhood developmental trauma such as abuse or neglect. This intern will partner with other trained TBRI Professionals to facilitate fun, engaging and sensory rich activities for children once trained in TBRI. The intern will use evidence based research tools to measure children’s progress in the groups.
