Step 1

Inquiry

Before making your inquiry and contacting us, make sure you understand the program's expectations for finding a mentor.

Youth must be between the ages of 5 and 21 and willing to commit to the program for one year (minimum one-year, however, most friendships last much longer).

You must also do the following:

  • Complete the Youth Application Process

  • Meet consistently with your mentor for at least 12 months.

  • For program success, guardian participation is expected.

  • The mentoring program is a non-therapeutic relationship


Step 2

Application

To make the best match possible, we use a series of interviews to get to know the youth and the family. The first step in the process is completing a written application. Click on the following link for the application.  We will ask the basic questions and follow up with the guardian and youth to gather additional information.

Training

To find the best matches for your youth, we use a series of meetings with you and your youth to

  • give you information about mentoring,

  • to cover program expectations, and

  • identify who would make a great mentor for your youth.


Step 4

Matching

We use an extensive matching process to make great matches. We match based on an array of factors including, location, personality, and similar interests.
