About

ChildServ seeks caring, committed adults 21 and over who are able to meet regularly with a youth for at least a year. Mentors should feel comfortable working with at-risk youth. Our mentors support youth and young adults in ChildServ’s group homes in DuPage County.

Why veterans? Military personnel and veterans have answered the call of duty and served a cause much greater than themselves, and ChildServ hopes to harness this potential to help children build, achieve, and sustain better lives.

Mentors work with youth on educational achievement and setting career goals, building trusting relationships and providing encouragement, to expand their horizons.

Criteria:
All veteran mentors must have received an honorable discharge from the military.
Current Active, Reserve, and National Guard are eligible to apply.
All applicants must be comfortable working with at risk youth, have experience with adolescents, and/or are willing to go through training.
All mentors must go through an extensive background check as well as be medically cleared.
All mentors must meet regularly with a youth for at least a year.
All mentors must have left the military at a pay grade of E4 or above.
Must have access to an insured automobile.
Must read/sign/abide by ChildServ’s code of ethics.
