Volunteer mentors will be paired with adolescents in DCF care between the ages of 14-21 that need dedicated, positive role models.


  • Must be 21 years or older
  • Pass background checks
    • DMV
    • Criminal
    • CT protective Services
    • Own reliable transportation
    • Make a 1 year commitment
    • Flexibility to see mentees as often as they choose, required at least 3 hours a month
    • Attend trainings
    • Attend 4 group activities per year

All mentees need is support, friendship, love, encouragement, patience, dedication... and most importantly YOUR TIME! Matches are made based on location, common interests, and typically are same-gendered. Three hours a month may not seem like much, but these mentors do play a significant part of a young person’s life and make a difference.
