During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
You can volunteer just one hour a week and make a huge difference in a young person’s life! The Shelton Mentor Program is looking for caring individuals who can spare just one hour a week to be a "mentor".
Following a brief training and background check, you will be matched with a student in one of the Shelton Public Schools. You then meet with your "mentee" at school once a week for an hour - talking, playing games, reading or enjoying other activities. You can be that student’s friend, confidante, role model and advocate.
As a mentor you will feel rewarded just seeing the difference you make as the young person you mentor matures and grows to reach his or her full potential.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Many students in the Shelton Public Schools benefit from their mentors - caring men and women throughout the Greater Shelton area who volunteer their time to spend one hour each week during the school day at schools throughout the city. These dedicated individuals are the heart and soul of the Shelton Public Schools Mentoring Program, and serve as positive role models for their Mentees.
Mentors are paired with students in grades kindergarten through 12. The objective is to be a consistent, caring adult in the life of the child for an hour each week. As this is a school-based program, mentor/mentee pairs typically meet at lunchtime and eat, play games and work on schoolwork or projects. Background checks are done for new mentors, and there is a 2 hour training session to help them get started.
We'll work with your schedule.
