About

Now accepting Mentors for the 2018-2019 School Year!

What is CIS Mentoring?

Our equation is a simple one - one adult, one child, one lunch a week= 2 Lives Changed

The CIS Mentoring Program gives adult volunteers and youth the opportunity to engage in a mentoring relationship in a structured and safe school based environment.

Who are Mentors?

CIS mentors are responsible adults willing to commit at least four hours a month toward fostering a positive relationship with a young person. To become a mentor you must:

* Be at least 21 years of age
* Complete a mentor application and interview
* Pass a background check and reference check
* Submit a copy of your driver's license
* Complete 3 hour mentor training
* Commit to a match for a minimum of one year

Why Mentor?

Research has shown that a young person who has a mentor is more likely to:
* Improve self-esteem
* Stay in school
* Improve academic and social skills
* Feel encouraged to develop positive behaviors, attitudes and ambitions

Research has shown that adults who serve as mentors experience:
* Improved health and self-esteem
