Mentor (FCG Pathways Program)
FOUR CORNERS GROUP INC
Four Corners team members dedicate time and a listening ear to offer hope to youth in crisis while helping them discover the pathway to becoming a thriving adult. Our mentors are a vital part of our team and this discovery process. Mentors spend an average of 3-5 hours each month with their mentees and are expected to walk the journey with each student for at least one year. As a mentor you may assist with career exploration, goal setting, or simply sharing your personal experiences from your life journey that are appropriate for the student.
The mentor application process will include a background check and personality assessment in order to make the best match possible for you and the student. Prospective mentors may also be asked for a list of references and to schedule an interview with appropriate Pathways staff. Upon approval, mentors will attend a 2 hour orientation class in addition to 6 more hours of mentor coaching during the 12 month commitment period.
