There are many volunteer programs and services that the willing community members of Brown County, WI can get involved with. These include: PALS Program: This program is for children to be matched with an adult mentor volunteer or family. The children are able to receive one-on-one attention from these mentors to make a positive impact in each child's life. The children referred to this program are often from single parent, low income. or special needs families who are in need of a positive role model. At any given time, the program has approximately sixty active matches and fifty children on the waiting list. Parent Pals Program: This program is designed to create a mentorship between a parent who has recently received his or her children back from foster care and a volunteer. The volunteer helps the parent learn how to make healthy meals, budget money, care for children, develop a good household routine, be someone a parent can depend on, and so much more! Supervised Visitation Program: This program allows the volunteer to monitor visits of families involved with the Brown County Child Protection Unit. Families are referred by the CPS staff to volunteers who supervise visits at home or in a private room between parents and their children who are placed out of the home with relatives or a foster home. Guardianship Program: A volunteer guardian is appointed by the court to have care, legal custody, and control of an incompetent person and/or to manage the property and finances of an incompetent person. Transportation Program: Volunteers are given the opportunity to transport agency consumers in need of transportation to court ordered services, such as visits, medical and counseling appointments, and court hearings at the request of department staff. Chore Program: Elderly, disabled and consumers with mental illness receive help with shopping & transportation. Referral by agency staff only. Shelter Care/Fostering Youth Independence Program: The volunteer will spend time with youth ages 15 ½-21 years old that are in court ordered out of home care (foster care/ kinship care) or have turned 18 after being in out of home care. The volunteer will provide long term support to the youth as a mentor and act as a resource as they leave the out of home care system. Volunteers teach independent living skills that will benefit the youth and give them the appropriate tools to create a good, healthy life.

Since this is my home town I wanted to share an amazing large project coming for foster children . The National Schoolhouse of Theatre Arts (NSTA) is an innovative collaboration between professional arts, the educational and medical communities and the Department of Health and Human Services. NSTA promotes a holistic learning environment using wrap around services, individualized for each youth’s educational and personal well being. NSTA is a collaboration integrating education, creative arts and trauma informed care while providing a scholastic and homelike environment. In addition, NSTA provides resources and support to foster success in children from child welfare by providing industry and technology. This schoolhouse of theatre arts is an innovative and creative style of secondary education coupled with a living situation which provides students the opportunity to develop safe, nurturing relationships, gain trust, create bonds and permanence in their lives for a successful transition into adulthood. ​ To live a happy, healthy and successful life is just the beginning. The National Schoolhouse of Theatre Arts not only provides students with a lifelong love of learning but also connects them to the world so that they will have the courage to dream and the desire to create. Every student will get a chance to explore his or her talent and whether they go on to pursue a career in the arts or not, what they take with them is a wealth of invaluable experiences. Collaboration is the key to arts, and we will use that key to unlock all the potential of every student. Today's vision will soon become tomorrow's vitality ​ We want our foster Children ages 15 to 22 to get the very best possible education, using theatrical arts as our guide. They will learn from the best and become the creative people that they have inside. Youth from all 50 states and territories will be welcome. We are very excited to change the direction of education for this amazing group of young people tnshta.com
