Become a Mentor!

Would you like to make a difference? Becoming a mentor can be a rewarding experience through becoming a positive role model for a youth who lives in your community. Mentoring has been proven to be an empowering way to create change and positive outcomes for youth who are unaware or unable to access the opportunities available to them. It is an excellent way to promote community engagement and help the youth make connections that will enhance their ability to succeed in their journey to becoming contributing members of society.

Pittsfield Community Connection, a program of 18 Degrees (formerly Berkshire Children and Families), matches adults with at-risk youth in the community. This is a great way for you to make change locally.

During this time of Covid-19 all safety and precautionary guidelines are being followed. Please contact us for more information on how to safely become a mentor during this challenging time.

Mission Statement

Every child in a family; every family in a community

Description

18 Degrees serves the people and families in our communities - whether by birth, choice, or circumstance. Our services respectfully provide the support people need to be able to discover possibilities that may not otherwise be clear. 18 Degrees develops respectful, inclusive partnerships with those we serve, walking side by side, together as the way to their goals and new beginnings come to light.

18 Degrees promotes the well-being of children and the strength of families to build better communities in the Berkshires and Pioneer Valley. We provide education, parenting skills and support, prevention and intervention, advocacy, and life skills across a spectrum of programs serving children and families in four areas: early childhood education and care, foster care and adoption, child and family well-being, youth and community development.
