Hispanic men and women are needed as mentors to youth!
A "big brother"- or "big sister"- type relationship will lead to a lower likelihood of experimentation with drugs, drinking before age 21, and other at risk behaviors. Plus, youths with mentors have more consistent rate of academic performance, attendance at school, and stay on track to graduate compared to unmentored youths.
- Assist youth in making positive choices,
- Explore careers and higher education,
- Help improve youth's grades,
- Assist youth's in setting goals for the future,
- See new things and places, and have fun!
- Be a positive role model and friend
- Mentoring boys and girls is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community
What can you do?
- Mentors connect with a deserving child to help them see their potential.
- Focus Mentor is a role model and friend.
- Mentors take part in a community to raise the children where we each have a role.
How does it work?
- Mentors spend minimum of 8 hours per month together
- Focus on schoolwork
- Go to movies
- Sporting events or museums
- Simply talk and be a trusted friend
As a mentor, you have the opportunity to help a child see a whole new world and way of life.
