UPLIFT Family Befrienders engage parent(s) of students from lower-income backgrounds. Through family befriending, we aim to help families build more stable and conducive home environments for their children, so that they are more motivated and engaged in school.

If you are ready to befriend and support a family, volunteer with us as an UPLIFT Family Befriender.

Volunteers help to:

  • Offer a listening ear to understand the family’s needs and challenges
  • Offer practical help and advice
  • Engage the assigned family regularly, e.g. home visits at least once a month with regular check-ins in between
  • Work with the local UPLIFT Town-Level Coordinator to link the family up with relevant community support
