Be a G.E.M.!

Volunteer to be a Mentor!
Please consider making an impactful difference in the life of a child by becoming a mentor. If you are a high school student or adult who would like to share your knowledge and friendship with a middle schooler, become a volunteer mentor at Friends of the Family. We provide training and support and match you with a mentee. We ask that mentors commit for an entire academic year to preserve the strength and impact of the mentor-mentee relationship. If you have any questions or would like to become a mentor, please contact José Beltrán, Program Coordinator, at (818) 988-4430 or at Find out more here.
