Mentor one child, change two lives. Volunteers are needed to mentor a child in Jamestown and surrounding areas. Mentors and mentees meet once weekly at school or in the community where they talk about school, friendships and make plans for the future. Volunteers offer guidance and support to encourage youth to build a stronger connection to the school and the community.
