Mentors applicants must: be at least 18 years old; pass a live scan criminal background check; and complete a training class before being matched with a youth.
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.
