About

A mentor is a trusted guide who accepts someone for who they are and is a source of encouragement for who they can become. Mentors share knowledge and experience with ex-offenders re-entering into the community in order to help the ex-offender define and reach his/her goals.

Here is a video from a current volunteer explaining his experience; https://youtu.be/VDuxj8yfuN8
