You can be that caring companion who supports the potential that lives in every child. By simply being present, listening to their stories, supporting them through challenges, and encouraging their dreams you help them find joy. Every young person deserves that companion. Community-based mentoring matches spend time together in the community doing activities you both enjoy — riding bikes, doing arts and crafts, playing board games, or simply hanging out. Each match develops and cultivates a unique relationship that empowers mentees to navigate life’s challenges and celebrate personal successes. Youth enrolled in our school-based mentoring program receive the same life-changing benefits, but instead of meeting in the community, matches meet at school during the youth’s lunch period throughout the school year. Matches are supported by a school-site coordinator.
