Today's youth could use a little extra support, whether it's for applying for college, getting a job, or just socializing. The Torrington Area Youth Service Bureau is seeking volunteer mentors to be that extra support that guides them through the journey of becoming mature, responsible and confident individuals.
Being a mentor is a rewarding experience where you get to watch a young person grow. A program that creates a strong bond by using relationship based support to increase the self esteem and success of an adolescent. This relationship requires patience, flexibility, and a nonjudgemental attitude.
As a mentor, group outings, activities, and trainings are provided by or reimbursed by the Torrington Area Youth Service Bureau.
Mentor's are required to be at least 21 years old, with a valid drivers license, and reliable transportation.
Giving your time says a lot to a youth who could use your support, if you are interested, contact Rebecca at the Torrington Area Youth Service Bureau.
