MAKE A FRIEND! MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

A little bit of time goes a long way and you can have fun while changing lives. The LUK Mentoring Program pairs caring, concerned role models with youth who will benefit from additional support. Mentoring is about positively impacting a young persons life by developing a long lasting friendship.

Community based mentors meet with their mentee on their own and do a variety of activities out in the community. Community Based mentors are allowed to meet in person following CDC/agency guidelines, if all participants are in agreement.

We are also accepting volunteer mentors who prefer to build a mentoring relationship remotely.

Site based mentors meet during the school year. One site based mentoring opportunity typically meets at the Sizer School in Fitchburg during the mentee's lunch and the other opportunity is at Plumley Village in Worcester and meets after school at Plumley Village. These programs will be offered remotely with the possibility of limited "in-person" match meetings.

The LUK Mentoring Program is funded in part by the Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention, Mass Mentoring Partnership and the Amelia Peabody Foundation.
