LifeTies Launches New Volunteer Program

Mentors Needed for At-Risk Youth in Mercer County- LifeTies, Inc. is looking for volunteers to mentor youth in Mercer County who have experienced chronic absenteeism or have had contact with the juvenile justice system. We are also looking for mentors for our new program for LGBTQ+ or questioning youth.

Mentors engage in building a caring, nurturing relationship with youth to help develop character, social relationship skills, career interests, and educational choices. By introducing youth to new experiences and sharing positive values, mentors can help young people avoid negative behaviors and achieve success. Youth with mentors have increased likelihood of going to college, better attitudes toward school, increased social and emotional development, and improved self-esteem.

Mentors who are at least 21 and pass all background checks must commit to at least 4 hours a month for 1 year. LifeTies provides mentors with broad training and support throughout their time as a mentor. For more information or to attend a virtual information session contact us!

LifeTies has a 40 year legacy of serving special populations of youth who have experienced complex trauma and have additional layers of challenges. We work with youth who:
- identify as LGBTQ+
- are pregnant and parenting
- are homeless
- are involved in the juvenile justice system
- are chronically absent from school
- have behavioral health and/or mental health challenges
- have experienced abuse or neglect
- are involved with the child welfare system

Our programs include two group homes (Triad House and Rainbow House)serving youth with behavioral health challenges, supportive housing for homeless youth and young adults and a mentoring program for at-risk youth in Mercer County that are involved with the juvenile justice system, are chronically absent or are questioning or who identify as LGBTQ+.
