Currently, the Be A Mentor Program has an urgent need for mentors for foster care youth in the Alameda and Contra Costa counties. These youth are in desperate need of a mentor, someone that they can talk to, spend time with, and who will be their friend.
They need someone to say "I believe in YOU!"
- Assist youth in making positive choices,
- Explore careers and higher education,
- Improve youth's grades,
- Assist youth's in setting goals for the future,
- See new things and places, and have fun!
- Be a positive role model and friend
- Mentoring boys and girls is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community
What can you do?
- Mentors connect with a deserving child to help them see their potential.
- Mentor is a role model and friend.
- Mentors take part in a community to raise the children where we each have a role.
How does it work?
- Mentors spend minimum of 8 hours per month together
- Focus on schoolwork
- Go to movies
- Sporting events or museums
- Simply talk and be a trusted friend
