Give Back & Mentor a Local Juvenile

About

One-To-One Mentoring
Screened and trained volunteer mentors from the community are carefully matched with youth currently involved with the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department. These youth are between the ages of 10 and 17 and are currently living at home. Each week, the mentor will offer one-to-one support and encouragement by participating in activities such as: talking at the park, playing sports, going to the movies, having dinner and going to the library. This program provides the juvenile an opportunity to spend quality time with a positive adult role model. The goal of the program is to build the youth's self-worth by developing healthy, thriving behaviors and to deter any further involvement with the juvenile justice system.
