Community based one-to-one mentoring programs which match a mentor to a child based on similar likes, interests and goals.
One to one matches based in the community usually get together for activities for a few hours every week based on their combined schedules; with a 1 year commitment to mentoring. These matches give the volunteer an opportunity to model positive behaviors/lifestyles that can make a life-changing impact for a child. By being enrolled in these matches, children are given the opportunity to build a strong and unique relationship with their mentor that can resonate with them for time to come.
Thank you for your interest in our mentoring programs. At this time we are only accepting female-identified youth from 5-11 years for new intakes. We are currently at capacity for all other youth. We do not feel it would be fair to add more names to an ever-growing list of children/youth waiting for an indefinite amount of time to be matched. We have undertaken a strategic planning process over the last year to support us in determining how we can best serve the youth in our community with mentors. As we implement our new strategic plan, we hope to increase our capacity for new youth. Please watch our website for when our waitlist is opened to other ages and genders of youth.
If you are interested in mentoring options for female identified youth from 5-11 years, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

When I started I didn’t realize I would have as much fun as my Little.

Having a mentor has helped my son build his self-confidence and become the person he wants to be.
