The Mentoring Program links members of the Club with positive role models among staff, volunteers, and local community members. The goal of the Mentoring Program is to provide consistent support, guidance, and concrete help on a one-to-one basis and to encourage mentees to improve academic achievement, school attendance, explore career goals, explore college and scholarship possibilities, solve life issues, and improve self-esteem. Volunteer mentors and mentees meet approximately one hour per week on the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County Main Campus located at 7500 Davis Boulevard, Naples. The relationship will last for the duration of one year. This provides time to develop a consistent, positive, healthy relationship Training and mentoring activities will be provided to those who volunteer for participation in this program.

At the initial meeting, potential volunteers will receive a quick tour of our campus and complete a volunteer application. Volunteers 18 years and older must agree to have a background check.
