Mentoring USA's mission is to create sustained and supportive mentor relationships for underserved youth ages 7-21. Changes in family structure and neighborhood networks have increased the time youth are spending unsupervised. More and more young people are facing pressures and risks alone. You can empower a child to believe in themselves, and fulfill their potential!
Mentors are matched with youth. With trained adult mentors who can guide in developing better self-esteem, creating healthy relationships, and making positive life choices, our underserved youth have the opportunity to grow up healthier. Mentoring provides support to the residents through activities promoting healthy choices, leadership and building self-esteem. In partnership with HELP USA, we serve youth from their permanent housing facility.
Mentors and mentees meet in a supervised environment at a set time and location.
All mentors must be 18 and older and willing to undergo a background check and screening.
