I work for a number of different volunteer organizations and have to say that the Naomi Project of Northern Virginia is one of my favorites! I started as a Volunteer Mentor there 3 years ago and really appreciated that they not only provided me with relevant training on mentoring a new mother - including where to find county services - but also matched me with a mother and let me take it from there. You schedule your own time for meeting with your clients. They also provide baby books for the new babies, baby equipment (if needed) and are always available if you have any questions. I've mentored three mothers and am happy that I've been able to help them in a number of different ways. I now mentor one new mom, administer their Facebook page and have just joined their Steering Committee and Advisory Board. Great place to volunteer!
