About

Catholic Charities' T.E.A.M. (Together Engaging Adolescents through Mentoring) is a one-to-one community-based mentoring program. We match youth (between 8 and 16 years old) with caring adult mentors. We ask that mentors commit to hangout with their mentees for 2 hours a week, every week, for at least 1 year. Many mentors choose to stay on for even longer!

Mentor/mentees matches do fun things around the community like explore new neighborhoods, catch a bite to eat, and play basketball. T.E.A.M. runs monthly free events for you and your mentee to attend, like trips to Six Flags, Red Sox games, and ice skating. T.E.A.M. program managers check in with mentors monthly to offer support and will email out free and low-cost activities.

Mentors receive training and ongoing support from T.E.A.M. staff throughout the duration of the match. In fostering solid friendships between young people and their mentors, T.E.A.M. seeks to enhance the resiliency of the youth through increasing their self-worth, fostering their ability to make positive life choices, helping strengthen their connections to school while improving academic outcomes, and discovering new perspectives in life.
