STREETS Pathways Mentoring Program pairs our middle and high school scholars with caring adult mentors. Mentors and mentees attend Grizzlies games together, eat at local restaurants, visit local attractions, go to movies, and so much more!

Complete a volunteer application
Pass a background check
Complete an interest assessment with a member of STREETS staff to best match your mentee
Attend a New mentor training with MENTOR Grizzlies and a Pathways New Mentor Training
Commit to 1 hours per week for 1 school year, between 2:30-6pm, Monday - Friday.
We have a waiting list of 20+ students eager to be assigned a mentor. Will you serve?
STREETS Ministries, through the love of Jesus Christ, engages, encourages and equips youth to achieve their potential by realizing their God-given purpose.
STREETS is an urban ministry that serves nearly 400 under-resourced youth every day in the Downtown and in the Graham Heights Communities. The organization exists to engage, encourage, and equip underserved youth by supporting the whole child, including a student's physical, mental, and emotional health. This is primarily achieved through after-school programming, which provides students safety, recreation, tutoring, biblical teachings, and a range of extra-curricular activities. While faith is an optional program component, children of all backgrounds are welcome and participate in STREETS programs. While STREETS is a faith-based organization, all faith-centered activities are optional, and students of all faiths are welcome. Our facilities and staff make STREETS a safe-haven, a place to hang out, meet a friend, and be welcomed with the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
