The Youth/Teen Mentor Program is designed to bring younger people together with caring adults in a structured and trusting relationship. Mentors offer guidance through role modeling, support and encouragement aimed at developing competencies and character in the youth/teens. The Youth/Teen Mentor Program is considered "group mentoring." All mentors and mentees will meet as a group to create a structured and fun environment in which youth/teens can work on improving their social skills and developing relationship with their peers as well as with the mentor. Youth/Teens participate in team building activities that strive to increase self-esteem, teach communication skills and encourages creative thinking. Mentors and mentees come together as a group; however, there can be designated time for the mentor and mentee to have their individual one-on-one time at the resource center.

Responsibilities can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Serve as a role model to youth/teens of the community
  • Facilitate activities with the youth/teens to promote building life skills, including: a healthy self-esteem, effective communication skills, conflict resolution, job skills, financial literacy, decision-making and goal setting. (Volunteer can plan activities and/or utilize activities provided by the Service Coordinator)
  • Provide resources for education or other needs to help the youth/teen succeed
  • Encourage youth/teens to explore their interest and passions to help guide them towards a successful career path
  • Assist with college applications or other like items where needed
  • Meet with the youth/teens once a month at minimum

Mission Statement

To be the leading provider of vital health, education and employment services to families, children, and seniors living in low-income housing communities. Our goal is to help keep family members employed, children in school, and seniors active.

Description

Project Access envisions that all residents of affordable housing communities have the opportunity to achieve self-sufficiency and maximize their full potential. To accomplish this goal Project Access works with affordable housing developers/owners in a partial fee-for-service relationship to bring free services to residents and in some cases those living within the overall community. This partial financial commitment and in-kind donation of space allows Project Access to bring additional resources together to develop comprehensive programs at our Resource Centers. Project Access’ bilingual Service Coordinators offer a variety of programs and services to address individual and community needs.
