Join a Kinship Partners event committee
Kinship Partners events are run by volunteer committees who work closely with our Events Coordinator. Volunteering on an event committee is a great way to support and get to know Kinship Partners, especially if you don’t think volunteering as a mentor is right for you at this time.
