Your gifts of compassion and care can make an amazing difference in the lives of patients and their families.  Often we underestimate the power that a smile, a caring word or the smallest act of kindness can have on someone.  Volunteers can provide support to patients and families through direct care or administrative duties.  Some examples are visitation with patient and family, providing relief for a caregiver, reading to patient, assisting with housekeeping, play cards or other games, assisting with yard work, running errands or walking a dog are just a few of the ways a volunteer can help.

All volunteers are required to have a background check, drug screen and Hospice Training that can be completed with online portal or taught by Manager of Volunteers.  Please feel free to contact Dana Johnson, dana.johnson@heartofhospice.net or (337) 828-2678.

Teach One to Lead One is a community mentoring program that teaches universal principles to lead at-risk kids into a life of purpose and potential. 

As a mentor, you work directly on the school campus during school hours in a classroom. It is a one time a week commitment for a semester. For example: Mrs. Smith’s 3rd hour class every Thursday. Mentors work in a team so there is no “one on one” mentoring.

Teach One to Lead One will provide all of the curriculum for the mentors. Each mentor receives their own personal binder with all of the curriculum needed for the semester. Mentors need only to review the information before class. The curriculum involves large group activities, large group discussions, games and activities. The entire mentor team works with the large group. At the end of every session is when mentors will work with their small groups, which involves small group discussions and journaling for the students.

Teach One to Lead One certifies all mentors in a free online course, as well as do background checks. The certification includes a background check, a child safety certification through Darkness to Light and some video courses on their curriculum. The online course takes about 3-5 hours (you are allowed to stop and go back- no need to do it all at once). Once you complete it, you will receive an email with instructions on how to begin! 

We currently have a pilot program at Tara High School and Bogalusa High School and Junior High. For more information, contact Charity Simmons, project specialist, at 225-505-9996 or charity.simmons@t1l1.org.

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.

The Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is responsible for bringing motor coach tours to our Southwest Louisiana. One of the premier attractions is the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road which is (one of only 43 designated All-American Roads in the USA). The Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana CVB is looking for Step-On Tour Guides. 

Step-On Guides: In order to ensure that motor coach tours have a full and rich experience the CVB often contracts step-on guides for these tours.  Step-on guides are people who step-on to the motor coach and take over the tour, for a set period of time, to provide the kind of information, local knowledge, that the tour escort (who is with the tour from start to finish whether that be 7 days or 30) with the tour cannot provide.

The role of a Step-On Guide is to join a group at a designated location and “step on” the coach to provide guided commentary of the sights, locations, and history of a local place, in this case, the Creole Nature Trail. They then leave the group and the company and tour escort continues on with its itinerary.
