Make a Difference in a Young Person’s Life Today.
We’re thrilled that you’re interested in becoming a mentor to one of the youth in our programs! Many of the youth we serve haven’t had the opportunity to build consistent, healthy relationships with adults whom they trust. Our mentoring program is trying to change that.
We decided to start I C.A.R.E. Mentoring program
Many successful people credit one or more mentors who made a big difference in helping them achieve early success. It’s nothing like having someone put their arm around you and say let me walk this journey with you.
According to the National Mentoring Partnership, those with mentors are 55% more likely to enroll in college and are 130% more likely to hold leadership positions later on in life. Mentoring guarantees our young people that there is someone who cares about them.
Our mentorship program focuses on building meaningful, healthy, one-on-one relationships with youth from ages 5–18. Mentors are encouraged to visit their mentee at least once a week in order to establish a consistent, reliable and supportive relationship. Being a mentor is truly a fun and life-changing experience for all involved!
