Mentoring ensures that young people have at least one consistent, trusting adult in their lives to help them navigate through daily challenges, make positive decisions, feel cared for, and know that someone is cheering them on. Ultimately, mentoring works because it gives young people the opportunity to GROW and THRIVE under the guidance of an adult to youth relationship.
Mentors can have a tremendous impact on the outcomes of youth, and you can be the person that makes a world of difference in a child's life.
To become a mentor, you must:
• Be at least 21 years old
• Have a high school diploma or GED
• Commit to a minimum of one full school year
• Meet with your mentee at least twice per month, with at least one visit per month in-person
• Provide reference checks
• Pass a Criminal Background Check and Fingerprint Check
• Attend a Mentor Orientation
