LCLC’s One-on-One Volunteer Mentoring Program

Our Volunteer Mentors provide extra support by coming alongside youth (ages 13-24) to act as both role model and friend. Our youth are 98% African-American and 90% male, so men of color are particularly encouraged to participate. Mentoring relationships are a critical social support service that can assist in everything from offering a healthy perspective to positive goal creation and completion.

Meeting at least once every two weeks, mentors and mentees may go on a bike ride, watch a movie, or sit and talk over lunch. LCLC offers once-a-month events to help facilitate the mentor/mentee relationship including movie nights, attending a step show, or roller skating. Orientations and quarterly training seminars are also offered.

Our mentors are pastors, neighbors, business leaders, community activists, retirees, and graduate students. Coming from within and outside the community, our volunteers share a common bond in that they seek to invest into young people’s lives and in doing so, strengthen our community.

Contact the Volunteer Coordinator to receive the next Mentor Orientation/Informational date.
