Exiting the criminal justice system comes with many challenges and hurdles for an ex-offender. At Trusted Mentors, we find that when these returning citizens are paired with a mentor their chance of overcoming their obstacles is dramatically increased.
A year of re-entry goes by quickly with a mentor's support. New habits will be formed, and the likelihood of a citizen reentering society returning to prison goes down significantly. When you become a mentor with us, you receive the needed training in order to be a positive energy in that person's life. Throughout the year, you get to go to our sponsored events with your mentee and meet other mentors like yourself. Examples of these events are fundraisers, sporting outings, or celebrations of our mentee's recent achievements.
Go to TrustedMentors.org » Volunteer Application and fill out an application. You can also easily listen to firsthand accounts about us @ https://vimeo.com/111005408. Please feel free to call us (317-985-50410) with more questions and schedule a time to go to your first training session.
Support. Stabilize. Succeed.

Trusted Mentors connects trained volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison.
Trusted Mentors connects trained, volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison. We accomplish our mission by:
- Providing quality training to equip volunteers with the resources and techniques needed to be effective mentors;
- Matching adults referred by partnering agencies with trained mentors; and
- Fostering on-going mentoring relationships by supplying useful information, guidance, and positive activities.
Mentors come from all walks of life. Whether you are a business professional or formerly homeless, your knowledge and life experiences can help one of our mentees make the positive changes they desire for a more successful future.
We partner with multiple agencies throughout Indianapolis, but we don’t duplicate services. The agencies maintain the case management - and we do what we do best, provide the mentors. Referring agencies utilize Trusted Mentors because it is an effective and professional organization.We mentor change - and it matters.
