Youth of the Year Mentor
1 person is interested
Each year, 5 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati locations select 1 Youth of the Year, an outstanding member who reflects strong character, leadership and embodies what it means to be a Boys & Girls Club member. Once selected, the five finalists go on to compete locally where they share their personal stories of adversity and triumph with a panel of judges who then select a local winner. We are looking for 5 professional adult role models to pair with our 2013 Youth of the Year finalist. Mentors will spend time getting to know their mentee while also developing them in the areas of writing and public speaking in preparation for their local competition. YOY mentoring will begin in November
Mentors should meet with their mentees at minimum once per week.
School Year Hours: Monday - Friday 2 - 8 p.m. (times vary by location)
