There are vulnerable and at-risk youth in our community who must overcome the effects of abuse, neglect, homelessness, chronic illnesses, and more. Studies have shown that the isolation at-risk youth are experiencing during this global pandemic can reinforce the trauma they've experienced. Having a mentor to interact and connect with can help to alleviate this issue. At LifeTies, it is our mission to nurture wellness and self-sufficiency in vulnerable youth, young adults and their families.
We need you! BECOME A MENTOR AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the life of youth in need!
Mentors engage in building caring, nurturing relationships with individual youth to help develop character, social skills, career interests, and educational choices. Mentors who are at least 21 and pass all background checks must commit to at least 4 hours a month for 1 year. Training and ongoing support will be provided.
A number of youth have requested a male mentor and this is a need we hope you can help us fill!
Nurturing wellness and self-sufficiency in vulnerable youth, young adults and their families.
All of our programs offer our youth and families a safe environment to heal, learn and become better equipped with the support and tools to work towards a brighter future. Our youth face numerous challenges. LifeTies works with adolescents to manage and overcome the effects of physical, emotional and sexual abuse through our programs and services: Triad House, Rainbow House, Mary's Place, Mercer County Family Engagement Program, Intensive In-Community Services, Mentoring Program, and the LifeLink Volunteer Program.
