Community Based Mentoring

Established in 1982, our community based mentoring program offers one-to-one and couple mentoring in the community setting. The program takes place between a carefully screened adult and a youth who meet within the community on a consistently scheduled basis. Youth mentees and volunteer mentors are encouraged to meet within the community on a consistently scheduled basis.

Our adult and high school based mentoring program were both established in 1995. Our adult school based mentoring program offers one-to-one mentoring within the school setting between an adult mentor and a student.
