The Employment Mentoring Program connects women returning home from incarceration or living in chronic poverty with successful community members dedicated to uplifting, teaching, and morally supporting them toward their career aspirations.

Our goal is to link successful mentors with our clients to establish meaningful relationships and promote personal growth. Our mentorships allow people from various backgrounds to positively exchange information about life, employment, family, time management, and health, and to model the habits and attitudes that lead to success.

Prerequisites for a Mentor:

  • Stable employment and living situation;
  • Sufficient availability in his or her schedule;
  • Police clearance and a letter of recommendation;
  • Open-mindedness, patience, and a willingness to be present for another person.

Mentorship is a 1-year commitment, and mentors are expected to make contact with their mentees at least twice per month. Mentors are encouraged to meet with the mentees in person, stay in touch with their mentees via phone and text, attend mentor continued training and support groups, attend CFLS family events, and log their hours and progress during the mentorship.
