Think of a mentor you had growing up. Someone you looked up to... Someone who cared... Someone who inspired you and helped you on your journey of life!

All of us had mentors in some shape or form growing up. Now it's your turn to GIVE BACK!

As a mentor, you will help youth who may be dealing with issues such as low self-esteem, social isolation, family problems, peer conflict, academic challenges or poor decision-making skills by being a positive adult role model and by buidling a strong, impactful relationship.
