Teen Life Counts is seeking volunteer educators who are comfortable with public speaking in a classroom setting (no more than 35 students), have a passion for working with teens, and have daytime availability. 

Teen Life Counts is a school based suicide prevention program for teens in middle and high school. Volunteers are in schools every week of the school year. Teen Life Counts provides a set curriculum that they will teach to volunteer educators. The presentation is a mix of powerpoint, lecture, discussion questions, a short video, workbook, and role play. The presentations are three hours long, split into two or three days depending on the school. 

It is preferred that the volunteer educators volunteer at least two times per semester (which is 6 hours total). Volunteers can participate more if they would like.

Volunteering with SBP:

SBP South Louisiana accepts volunteers 7 days a week from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. (Groups of 5 or more are needed to open site on the weekends.) Volunteers can work through any phase of construction including gutting, drywall and mudding, flooring, trim and painting, all the way to final clean. Volunteers receive an orientation to kick start their first service day, and then are lead by trained Project Leads who show volunteers how to do each task safely. You will receive an hour for lunch, but SBP does not provide food. SBP provides all of the tools and safety equipment you will need to rebuild the home! SBP takes volunteers 14-years-old and over.

To register, you can fill out an online registration here.

A little bit about SBP:

 

SBP is a disaster relief non-profit whose mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery. SBP launched just after Hurricane Katrina and has since grown into a national organization, rebuilding over 1,400 disaster affected homes across the country. SBP South Louisiana became operational just after the historic August 2016 flood to serve East Baton Rouge and Livingston Parishes. We are very similar to Habitat for Humanity in that we utilize volunteers to rebuild the homes of flood survivors, but we focus entirely on long-term recovery. We serve the most vulnerable communities and bring our clients to a full recovery in an efficient and predictable manner.
