Peer Partners

Every year Ready For Life Academy is blessed with volunteers eager to further the cause of inclusion. Simply put, RFL would not be the organization it is today without the help of its volunteers. However, that is not to say that RFL does not need more volunteers. The saying “too much of a good thing” does not apply to this situation and RFL would love to recruit more volunteers. If you are interested in becoming more involved with RFL, look below to see what you might be interested in and contact RFL via a staff member or by emailing [email protected].

Volunteering can occur in many different areas within RFL Academy. Opportunities are as follow:

Social Peers: These individuals choose to pursue an intentional relationship with those using Ready For Life’s services. RFL acts as a conduit to help the social peer and RFL participant connect. Social peers can give as much or as little to the relationship as they want, just as any other friendship. The content of the time spent together can be planned by the peer, or it can be fostered by RFL. Also, in occasions where RFL needs a peer for a particular situation it may contact its list of social peers to help.

Classroom Peers: These individuals connect with the RFL Academy students on a weekly basis by tutoring them in their classroom. A classroom peers provides support for the RFL Academy student with their transition life skill classes or their college course work.

In-Class Peers: These individuals support the RFL Academy students in their college classes. They provide in class support by helping the student participate in class. They also help with the communication between the RFLA student, the professor and the RFLA instructor.
