Our program relies on volunteers who have an interest in mentoring someone facing the challenges of living in poverty. We work together to help our program participants to take steps on a new path to self-sufficiency, journeying along side with an open ear and experienced guidance.
Shortly after orientation and training, our Mentors are matched with a program Participant and begin meeting with them once a week. Mentors and Participants initially collaborate on goal-setting exercises and then over the next twelve months work together towards achieving those goals.
