YES Mentoring Program

The Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut (CGC) is currently seeking volunteers for its Youth, Empowerment, & Support (YES) Mentoring Program. The YES Mentoring Program will provide children, ages 6-18, with an opportunity to enjoy recreational activities and engage in positive relationships with members of our community. As a YES mentor, you will be serving as a positive role model for an at-risk youth and participate in fun, age-appropriate activities with a child, establishing a positive social relationship. While you are spending quality time with the child/teen, you're also providing their parent(s) with some much needed self-care time.

Each YES session lasts 12 weeks, and you will be required to meet with the child/teen for three hours a week. Every mentor will complete a thorough interview, orientation, and background check. The mentor and family will work together to develop a convenient schedule of enjoyable activities for the child.

To volunteer, please contact Sheila Figueroa at (203) 517-3346 or sheila.figueroa@childguidancect.org.
