Become A Mentor

One-on-One Mentoring connects a volunteer mentor to one of the youth in our program (mentee). After completing the screening process, the mentor is matched with a youth in her/his own community.

 

Mentors agree to spend at least 2 - 4 hours per month for at least one year with the mentee doing various activities. Some examples of activities are (but not limited to): hiking, visiting a museum, park or other points of interest; cooking; playing basketball; performing community service; having lunch or coffee to chat.

 

Mentors may also provide support to mentees by attending school activities and functions.

The goal of mentoring is to positively influence the life of a young person. Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity.
The youth are provided with positive adult role models, life skills training, support, and counseling via evidence-based workshops on including healthy lifestyles; bullying; self-image; drugs and alcohol, career exploration, conflict resolution, problem solving, and goal setting.
