Mentoring Youth Program

Our mentoring program focuses on matching youth with a caring adult who will connect with them on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Each Mentor/Mentee pair is unique – the relationship is catered towards the youth’s individual needs. Some pairs focus on trying new activities while others focus on processing and goal setting. We will help you develop a relationship that helps you grow.
