Mission

Catalyst Mentoring is a vision to invest in our city’s youth to invest in our city’s future through the power of mentoring. No one gets to the finish line of life having done something great without the support and guidance of great mentors along the way. Unfortunately, for many kids in our community, there is no one showing up in their story and left to their own problem-solving abilities our youth are repeating the stories that they are seeing with their lives. We envision a future in our community where every young person has a caring adult in their life to help them navigate their path towards a bright future.

School Mentoring

Catalyst will be relaunching our school mentoring programs in the Fall of 2021. The Catalyst School Mentoring serves students one day a week on their campus during lunch time. Mentors are paired with 2 to 3 students and participate in art or athletic activities while engaging in the Catalyst Character Education Curriculum. This curriculum allows mentors and mentees to explore things like respect, perseverance, and courage while in a safe fun environment.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
