Mentors support youth in the community and help them reach their goals. To participate, youth must have an open case with the Juvenile Department. Matches are made based on personalities, interests, location and cultural or language needs.
Mentors must clear a background and driving check, including fingerprinting, and complete training.
What to Expect
As a mentor you will work with a youth to assist them reach personal goals, such as school success, finding a job and learning new skills. You will participate in fun, safe activities with youth based on things you would like to do together. You will meet for at least 8 hours per month for six months or more. We are always in high need of male mentors to match with our youth!
