About

Catholic Charities Connections Program is actively recruiting volunteers to work as mentors with children ages 5-17. Mentors offer support, guidance, and education as a youth goes through a difficult time, faces new challenges or opportunities, or takes on an important task. A mentor is a person who is willing to share their life-long expertise to provide support to the youth. Mentors can play an important role as the youth develops mentally and emotionally to help a youth understand their goals and personal needs. Mentors must be a minimum of 18 years of age. Prospective mentors will undergo an intensive screening process consisting of: application and informal autobiography, personal interview, reference checks, criminal background check, driving record check and program orientation. The program serves youth in Middlesex County. Mentoring is the process of sharing personal knowledge and skills with a young person.
