About

Volunteer to be a mentor for a Tulsa area youth.

Volunteers ages 21 and older receive 15 hours of training prior to being matched with a mentee. Mentors and mentees meet for 1-3 hours a week for one year.

Children matched with a mentor are showing improvement in school behavior and performance, family relationships, and social responsibility. Youth are FIVE times more likely to graduate if they have a meaningful relationship with an adult. Kids who have mentors are nearly 50% less likely to use drugs.

Change a life-become a mentor!
