Spanish-speaking 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.
Mentors engage in building a caring, nurturing relationship with youth to help develop character, social relationship skills, career interests, and educational choices. Studies have shown that the isolation at-risk youth are experiencing during this global pandemic can reinforce the trauma they've experienced. Having a mentor to interact and connect with can help to alleviate this issue.
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 an in-person information session contact us!
Nurturing wellness and self-sufficiency in vulnerable youth, young adults and their families.
All of our programs offer our youth and families a safe environment to heal, learn and become better equipped with the support and tools to work towards a brighter future. Our youth face numerous challenges. LifeTies works with adolescents to manage and overcome the effects of physical, emotional and sexual abuse through our programs and services: Triad House, Rainbow House, Mary's Place, Mercer County Family Engagement Program, Intensive In-Community Services, Mentoring Program, and the LifeLink Volunteer Program.
