Fighting To Be Heard Youth Mentor Program
The DFGOYC Youth Mentor Program matches mentors with elementary, middle, and high school students in one-to-one relationships for an academic year. Through these relationships, as well as recreational and group activities, our matches share friendship, support, and fun. Mentors and mentees get together at least once a week or a total of 10hours a month. Both mentors and mentees make a commitment to spend time together throughout the academic year. They can participate in activities that they both enjoy. The mentors are not private tutors, although sometimes pairs decide to work on homework together. We plan social group activities on a monthly basis that are open to all participants. We are also available at all times to answer questions, offer support and help matches work through challenges that may arise.
Currently, DFGOYC is looking for mentors in the Atlanta Metro area to be apart of this program. Our goal is to have 100 youth is this FREE program. We are looking for someone who has a passion for the kids, ambitious, be patient and understand the mentoring relationship is a process that takes work and time.
