Dependability, patience, flexibility, and most of all, a commitment to a young person’s success. Our mentors come from all walks of life: they are single and married, just starting their careers and retired from years of service, and diverse in ethnicity, beliefs, and lifestyles. And they all love to learn, grow, and have fun!
The program runs throughout the school year from late September to mid-June. Participants dedicate 2-3 hours each week to Community for Youth activities. *Limited openings are available for a mid-year group which runs from January to mid-June.
To ensure success for our students and the program as a whole, mentors must honor this time commitment. Consistency is one of the greatest gifts you can offer your student and the community.
At the start of the year, mentors are assigned to groups. These groups meet weekly on either Tuesdays or Thursdays and remain together for the duration of the year. Weekly activities rotate between a one-on-one activity with your student, a small group activity, a Mentor Only Workshop and a Student-Mentor Workshop.
