One-On-One Mentoring is a long-term mentoring program where adults and youth are matched for at least one year. They have weekly contact and engage in 4-6 hours of positive activities a month.
Mentors assist mentees in goal setting and encourage them to become their best self. Mentors provide a positive influence and mentees gain a better outlook on life. Mentos gain an elevated outlook on life and have an opportunity to give back.
The program is free of charge to participants. The NextGen Mentoring staff provides personal, on-going support to participants, helping each match thrive and succeed.
