About "Year of Pals": Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach is teaming up with the Green Bay Packers, Oneida Nation, and the Brown County Sheriff's Office to help recruit volunteer adult mentors to provide crucial support and guidance to youth involved with Brown County Child Protective Services. These community partners have proclaimed 2022 as the "Year of Pals Mentorship" with the goal of establishing a team of 100 adult mentors for the at-risk youth currently awaiting a mentor, and children who haven't yet been referred for a mentor but could use one.
- Pals Program: Volunteer mentors spend time (2-3 times per month) in a recreational or learning activity with a child, age 3 or older, that has been referred by Brown County Child Protective Services. Volunteer mentors help the child adjust to the separation or loss of a parent, enhance self-esteem and confidence, and learn new skills. Matches are invited to attend a fun activity each month that is free of charge. Matches are based on compatibility and can continue for as long as both parties are interested though the hope would be to have volunteers engaged with their Pal for a minimum of 1 year.
- Pals Activity Chaperones: Chaperones spend time with a youth in the Pals Program by attending the program’s monthly group activities. The Pals Program is a mentoring program of Brown County Health & Human Services. Children in the program are age 3 or older from a family that has been or is currently involved with Brown County Child Protective Services. The children needing a chaperone do not have an adult who is able to bring them to the activity to allow them to participate.
- Parent Pals Program: Volunteer mentors spend time (2-3 times per month) with parents referred by Brown County Child Protective Services who have identified an interest in having informal support in their lives. Mentors often spend time helping parents with minor children develop new skills that empower the family to live and function in a safe and healthy manner. Matches are based on compatibility and can continue for as long as both parties are interested though the hope would be to have volunteers engaged with their Parent Pal for a minimum of 18 months.
