Now more than ever, teens in Sonoma County need caring mentors to help them succeed in the 2020-2021 academic school year.

Your role as a mentor is to meet, in-person or virtually, with your student cohort, and engage in two monthly meetings where youth and adults work together. In addition, we will propose optional outdoor, socially-distanced activities such as: outdoor games, trivia games, coffee chats, study sessions, and more.

Our program will create various cohorts of 2 mentors and 6-8 students. Each cohort will select a time to meet, in-person or virtually, to engage in the program.

You will be trained to provide support, and be a positive role model for the youth in the program. By guiding them through activities, providing the cohort with resources, and help them set, and achieve, academic and life goals.

Roles of Volunteer Mentors

  • Complete screening and training requirements set by 4-H and school districts
  • Set up a time and day to virtually meet with your cohort
  • Attend monthly meetings to engage in fun team building activities (Virtual or In-Person)
  • Work with other mentors to provide students with academic support
  • Work with 4-H staff to help provide youth with resources they need to succeed
  • Guide students through structured activities to help them set and achieve their goals
  • Help evaluate the program by providing reflections from mentors and students
