L.I.F.E. Mentoring Program

"As mentors, you’re planting a seed that may not take root for years. But let me tell you, when it does, the benefits are undeniable." - Former First Lady Michelle Obama, National Mentoring Summit (2011)

What is the L.I.F.E. Mentoring Program?
A Place Called Home's (APCH) L.I.F.E. Mentoring Program is a community-based mentoring program. Every mentee is an APCH member between the ages of 14-17 years old who resides in South Los Angeles. Each mentee is looking for a mentor that can offer advice, support, and friendship.

Program Requirements:

- 1 year minimum commitment

- Must be 21 years or older

- Complete Mentor On-Boarding & Trainings

- Pass a background check

- Access to reliable transportation (i.e. Driver's license, auto insurance, auto registration)

Matches see each other twice per month for 3-4 hours each time. The goal is to empower youth to reach their life goals by improving self-esteem, increasing school performance, and presenting them with opportunities they can seize!
