Be a Mentor
Do you want to make a difference? Are you patient, flexible, and a good listener? Volunteer your time to make a difference in a young person's life.
Mentors are needed to provide youth with guidance and support. As a mentor you can spend quality time with a young person to improve their self-esteem, promote positive youth development, and help them deal with day to day challenges. Mentors make a 12 month committment to work with youth on an ongoing basis and a minimum of four hours per month. Mentors must be at least 21 years of age and pass all background clearances.
