Summer fun in the sun with potential mentors and mentees of Single Mom Strong's Men's Mentoring program!

About this event

The SMS Kids Summer Sports Series is an opportunity for the children of the SMS community to get to know each other better and have some fun, while getting to know those interested in volunteering for our Men’s Mentoring program in the coming year. Our volunteers and mentors will “coach” the kids in a different game each month. In July, we will enjoy some soccer!

All children of single moms, ages 4-13 are welcome. Lack of experience or athleticism should not discourage you from participating. Please come out and get to know our volunteers and mentors! Moms will be invited to play, drop off and pick back up (emergency form must be on file and mom must return by 7:45pm) or, if enough moms are interested, we will hold a potluck picnic dinner for the moms. NOTE: attendees have priority for Men's Mentoring Team participation throughout the year.

Please ensure children wear tennis shoes and bring water and have eaten dinner before attending, as only small snacks will be available.

We are looking for a few good men! Are you interested in making a positive impact on a child's life? (Or do you know someone who is- please share!) Come on out to this SMS Summer Sports Series event to learn about our program and get to know the children of the SMS community!

Single Mom Strong’s Men’s Mentoring Program creates relationships between caring, positive male role models and school-aged children of single moms, resulting in the provision of support, friendship, and constructive role modelling consistently over a period of time. Mentors are trained and supported to mentor and serve as positive role models to mentees in a structured environment. Mentors and mentees meet regularly and consistently, typically for 2 hours each month, over the course of a school year, where they engage in small group activities and establish a caring relationship.

Organizer of Single Mom Strong's Men's Mentoring Team Event: KIDS SUMMER SPORTS SERIES

Statistics shows that children of single mothers suffer in a variety of ways and the mothers often find themselves living in poverty and riddled with guilt or frustration. But, we are here to change the statistics.  We believe that single mothers and their children do not have to be negatively impacted by this circumstance. In fact, being "single-mom-strong: having grit and determination; refusing to fail", is not detrimental at all... Single Mom Strong exists for the empowerment of single mothers and their children through enrichment, encouragement and educational programs.  Funds raised are used to advance our mission.

It is the mission of Single Mom Strong to create a community of single mothers and children in support of one another, while empowering them to be their best selves, through enrichment, encouragement and educational programs.
