About

Southwest Key Programs works with community partners to recruit a culturally diverse population of committed mentors. Our organization utilizes our extensive community network to recruit mentors from within the youth’s surrounding community reaching out to extended family, neighbors, teachers, coaches, religious and community leaders and employers.

Mentors commit to serve as role models for their assigned mentee for a minimum of one year, providing support, encouragement and pro-social lifestyle development opportunities. They act as a resource and confidant to youth when personal and education problems occur. Mentors also provide transportation for mentees to and from mentoring activities, as needed.

All volunteer mentors undergo a thorough screening including a written or online application, in-person interviews, and extensive reference and criminal background checks. Upon successful recruitment, each mentor receives orientation training and optional quarterly enhancement trainings throughout the year. Social brown bag lunches are coordinated periodically to provide a venue for mentors to exchange ideas, access peer support and for staff to provide technical assistance.
