Re-Entry

Mentoring Ex-Offenders

Through mentoring, your expertise helps create a positive influence on someone in need. Our mentors need to be non-judgmental, empathetic, and open to diversity. The community of adults which we serve often struggle with re-entry and need a mentor's guidance to get through this difficult time. You will be given training and support to aid you efforts in their revival. In this twelve month span, you will meet with your mentee for six hours a month. Our results show, this time together matters. When we pair mentors with these people we have shown a high success rate of ex-offenders not violating their parole, staying employed, and ultimately not going back to prison. Since 2003,Trusted Mentors has maintained an 86% average in helping people remain housed; and an 82% average in helping mentees not return to prison. Plus there will be opportunities for you to attend engaging workshops and fundraisers where you will be able to meet other volunteers like yourself.

About Trusted Mentors

Location:

546 E. 17th St, Suite 102, Indianapolis, IN 46202, US

Mission Statement

Trusted Mentors connects trained volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison.

Description

Trusted Mentors connects trained, volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison. We accomplish our mission by:

  • Providing quality training to equip volunteers with the resources and techniques needed to be effective mentors;
  • Matching adults referred by partnering agencies with trained mentors; and
  • Fostering on-going mentoring relationships by supplying useful information, guidance, and positive activities.
Trusted Mentors is recognized as the leading provider of mentoring relationships that empower at-risk adults to remain housed and avoid incarceration.

Mentors come from all walks of life. Whether you are a business professional or formerly homeless, your knowledge and life experiences can help one of our mentees make the positive changes they desire for a more successful future.

We partner with multiple agencies throughout Indianapolis, but we don’t duplicate services. The agencies maintain the case management - and we do what we do best, provide the mentors. Referring agencies utilize Trusted Mentors because it is an effective and professional organization.

We mentor change - and it matters.
