We’re looking for adult mentors who have fun with and are energized by spending time with young people ages 10-14. Our mentors are excited to collaborate with young people, flexible in thinking, and open to feedback. This is a group mentoring program and 1-2 mentors will be matched with 3-5 mentees.

  • Attend an in-person kick-off event in September to meet your mentees. Engage in get-to-know-you activities.
  • Attend an evening 2-hour virtual volunteer training
  • Communicate weekly with mentees through a virtual mentoring platform.

Fall/Winter 2022

  • Participate in a once-a-week, 12-week in-person program. This program will meet in the after-school hours on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30 PM at Queens Public Library at LIC.
  • Engage in Riis facilitated group activities to form authentic, supportive relationships and develop mentees; own 'My New York Story’. This story is an exploration of what their neighborhood and community means to them.
