Become a trained mentor

Do you want to make a difference in the life of a young person? Are you caring, patient, flexible, and a good listener? Will you volunteer your time to be a mentor? Help shape someone's tomorrow. Become a trained volunteer mentor today.

As a trained volunteer mentor, you can spend quality time with a young person to improve their self-esteem, promote positive youth development, help them deal with day-to-day challenges, build social leadership and resiliency skills, identify educational and career interests, set goals, broaden horizons, participate in social activities, and have fun. Your involvement as a mentor can make a positive impact on the life of a young person.

LifeTies Mentoring services include individual support sessions, group mentoring, and peer activities led by mentors. Mentors are matched with mentees based on common interests and work together to set and reach goals. 

LifeTies Mentors are currently needed to support youth aged 10-21 on the path to a safe and healthy future. You can provide the support a young person needs. Mentors are currently needed to support youth in communities across New Jersey. 

You can be the one to provide support to a child, teen, or young adult who would benefit from the support of a caring mentor.
