Caring mentors help teens face every-day challenges, find opportunities, and take control of their future.

Teenage years can be challenging.

  • Staying motivated in school
  • Being uncertain about the future
  • Wanting independence, but lacking skills and resources

How can you help?

Volunteer as a mentor!

Youth who have a mentor are more likely to:

  • Attend high school regularly and graduate
  • Go to college or get vocational training
  • Be employed
  • Have more positive attitudes and social connections
  • Avoid justice system involvement

What’s involved?

Developing a trusting, one-on-one relationship between mentor and mentee is the primary objective.

Mentors support their mentees by identifying and accomplishing goals during a year-long series of weekly meetings.

Schedules are decided by each mentoring match, and goals and activites are youth-driven.

Training and on-going support are provided.

      • are good listeners
