Support Connections of Lebanon County (SCLC) is looking for ten volunteers willing to join a family on their journey toward self-sufficiency. As Team Mates, these individuals will walk alongside the program’s low-income participants (Team Leaders) and their families.
Four weeks of Team Mate training will begin on Tuesday February 21st. Then two or three Team Mates will be matched with each Team Leader to form support teams. After the matching process is complete, support teams will meet together twice a month moving forward. Training will take place beginning with dinner at 5:30pm at the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church each Tuesday from Feb 21st through March 14th, 2017.
Support Connections of Lebanon County has eight Team Leaders who will be completing their preparatory training in March. These low-income individuals and families have been working to assess their own backgrounds and resources, then to develop a “future story” that includes specific goals for moving forward. Team Mates help the leaders by sharing their own experience and making connections with others in the community who may be able to help the Team Leader achieve his or her goals. Since the goal of SCLC is help our leaders become more self-sufficient, Team Mates do not loan money, provide childcare or “bail out” Team Leaders.
