As you know, we put a call out for Applications to the Peer Mentoring Program during the Fall and extended the aplication deadline once until November 15, 2017. While we did receive a number of applications, we did not receive any from Labrador, Northern Peninsula or the St. John's/CBS area. We do not want to begin screening and training until we are certain that everyone who is interested has been able to apply.
Given the hectic activities of fall with getting the children settled back into school and preparations for Christmas, we realize that some people who might apply at another time may hesitate to add "just one more thing" right now.
As a result, we have extended the application one final time until Monday, February 15th, 2018.
The job description, application and social worker reference are all linked below.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with Amy at 754-0213, 1-877-754-0218 (toll free) or email@example.com.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Call For Peer Mentor Applications
The Newfoundland and Labrador Foster Families Association has developed a Peer Mentoring Program and is now beginning the process of selecting peer mentors. Our goal is to have the program up and running by December. If you have been fostering for five years or more and would like to provide support to new foster parents, this could be a great opportunity for you.
Below, please see the peer mentor role description and the peer mentoring pamphlet. This is a volunteer position and mentors will not be paid for their time, however a small honorarium will be provided. Costs will be covered for foster parents to participate in peer mentor training.
If you are interested in this exciting new opportunity, you can request an application by contacting Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 754-0213 or 1-877-754-0218 (toll free). The deadline for applications is October 15, 2017.
If you are a new foster home or have been fostering for less than two years and are interested in being matched with a peer mentor, you can also contact Amy for more information.
