Give Back & Mentor a Local Juvenile

Mentoring In Detention
Adult volunteer mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained to provide visitation to male or female youth in the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department Detention Center. The juveniles chosen to receive a mentor are usually those that: do not have anyone coming to visit them, are going to be there longer than average or just need special one-to-one visits. This program is designed for mentors to provide support, listen and encourage the juveniles while they are being detained in the detention center.

One-To-One Mentoring
Adult volunteer mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained. The mentor will be carefully matched by gender with a male or female juvenile currently involved with the juvenile probation department. These juveniles 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 or 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 justice system.
