In the Family Care Network’s Career Mentor program, we want to connect our foster teens with local professionals, helping our youth learn more about careers paths, goals and opportunities.
We have both short- and long-term Career Mentor opportunities available, depending on your interest and availability.
Short-Term Career Mentor:
Meet with a youth at your workplace for one hour
Share helpful information with them about your current position, employer and related industry
Inform youth about the career path you took to get to your current role; including the challenges and rewards you’ve experienced
Long-Term Career Mentor:
Meet with a young person at least twice a month (approximately six to eight hours a month) for a year commitment
Develop a one-on-one relationship with this youth, supporting them in their career path
Prior to mentoring, you will participate in a four-hour Mentor Training to help you better prepare for your Career Mentor role
Whichever role you pursue, you’ll receive ongoing and individual support by FCNI staff.
