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 mentor on their own and do a variety of activities out in the community. Site based mentors meet during the school year. One site based mentoring opportunity 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.
Community & Site based mentoring programs are currently funded in part by MA. Department of Public Health, MANY, Mass Mentoring Partnership and the Amelia Peabody Foundation. Our service area is Central Massachusetts.
