Youth mentoring is the process of matching mentors with young people who need or want a caring, responsible adult in their lives. The goal of youth mentoring programs is to improve the well-being of the child by providing a role model that can support the child academically, socially and/or personally.
We offer gender specific mentoring programs on-site, in the community, and virtually. In addition, 1:1 mentoring and group mentoring are also available.
E-mentoring allows participants to communicate at their own convenience and beyond time zones since it eliminates the need for them to be in the same physical location.
Mentors and Mentees will be paired based on areas of interest. The Mentee-Mentor pair can then meet and talk at mutually convenient times in person or virtually .
Group mentoring utilizes multiple mentors and mentees in a group setting. Although structured as a group, learning is individual and each mentee works on his or her own unique needs and development goals.
