Become a Mentor

Help shape someone's tomorrow. Become a mentor today.

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?

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.
