We pair kids from our neighborhood with positive, caring adult role models, firmly believing every child can use another safe adult who is showing up for them and cheering them on, and every adult can use a kid to remind them to laugh and play more.
Currently our mentoring program has about 25 adults in long-term matches with youth, based on personality and interests. Mentors commit to meeting once a week with their mentee, and our staff is continuously providing tons of support, along with fun, free activities for mentoring matches! The goal is not to do lots of extravagant things together, but instead to spend time learning about each other’s lives and building a trusting friendship.
Potential mentors need to have reliable transportation and a consistent two hours free each week to dedicate to a mentoring relationship. We provide training and a lot of support along the way.
Mentors commit to being with their mentee for a year, but with the expectation that if things are going well in the match, it will continue for the long haul.
