About

Camp S.W.A.G. is proud to offer a mentorship program to help students recognize, develop and implement a plan to pursue their ambitions and goals whether they are attending the college of their dreams, discovering new skills or solidifying future goals. We want to help teenagers develop a strong work ethic by building strong self-esteem. The mentorship program will focus mainly on: preparing youth for the corporate world (teaching youth how to build strong resumes, interviewing techniques, and professionalism), aiding in academic endeavors, planning/applying for colleges, and time management training. Our mentorship programs matches teens with adult volunteers of similar ethnicity, gender and cultural backgrounds. To ensure that adolescent girls and boys develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, their communities and the environment the mentee(s) and the mentor meet through (one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring or supervised peer-to-peer mentoring sessions) weekly groups, monthly activities and the mentoring relationship. Camp S.W.A.G. Mentoring Program’s core goal is to provide meaningful ongoing relationships that expose adolescents to important social, educational and cultural opportunities that foster positive behavior and improve self-esteem.

We firmly believe in helping the world’s youth so that they can create their own tomorrow, we simply wish to be a conduit and facilitator; to watch these students grow and fulfill their dreams.

We are looking for dedicated mentors to help shape lives of teenagers by providing the support they need to make a difference in their lives, their community and the environment.
