The New Horizons Refugee Youth Mentoring Program is an opportunity to match adults 18 years and older with a refugee between the ages of 9 and 17. As a mentor you will be trained to be a positive role model and encourage academic achievement. This program provides an opportunity for cultural exchange and personal growth for both the mentor and the mentee. This is a great chance to experience Louisville's growing international community while changing the life of a child. The program is a one year commitment with once a week interactions with child for two hours.
