Ways to help youth thrive

Community Based Mentoring

Mentors can change the lives of young people. By being genuine you are able to be matched with a young person that you can have the best relationship with. Quiet or not; Athletic or not; Artistic or not; Young or not; truly, all types of personality styles or types can be great mentors. Our program has a diverse array of people and we would love to have you join our family! Background checks are performed on every applicant. We have an orientation and training the first Wednesday of every month or Match Specialists will set up a day/time to meet one-on-one to conduct the orientation/training. Our expectations for potential mentors is that they commit to a year of mentoring who meets with their mentee 4 hours monthly.
