We are looking for volunteers for our One-on-One Mentoring initiative through our NextGen Mentoring Program.
Volunteers need to want to help youth by being there for them, letting them know that someone cares about them, and won’t give up on them.
The youth involved are between 11-17 and want to be part of this program. They come for all different backgrounds and we make matches based on likes, dislikes and personalities.
Education for our youth is increased by having an adult mentor in their lives.
76% of at-risk youth who were mentored aspired to enroll and graduate from college compared to 56% of at-risk youth without an adult mentor.
45% of at-risk youth with a mentor are enrolled in some type of post-secondary education compared to 29% of at-risk youth without a mentor.
Become A Mentor:
- Be 18 years old or older
- Submit to a background check
- Commit to 4–6 hours per month
- Contact youth weekly
- Commit to one full year
- Complete Mentor Training
Devoting your time and effort can make a change in one person’s life.
Help be the one who can improve our at-risk youth with their self-esteem, social anxiety, and quality of life over the course of a year.
