Mentor for Exodus Project
SACRAMENTO DISTRICT COUNCIL
Do you consider yourself a mentor or have an interest in becoming one? Exodus Project is looking for one-on-one mentors to work with men and women during the final months of their incarcerations and for six-months post-release. We are looking for mentors from all walks of life. Being a mentor means offering non-judgemental listening, encouragement, and guidance. Mentors can also provide practical support with housing, healthcare, and employment. It is a 5 to 8 hour a month commitment for a year. Men and women who were criminal justice impacted or are in recovery are strongly encouraged to apply.
Our next mentor training is scheduled for March. Due to COVID-19, the training will be held via Zoom. It is a fabulous training with many returning citizens as trainers.
This is an exciting opportunity to become directly involved in helping someone get back on their feet. The 16-hour training is as follows: Wed, Mar 10, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Thur, Mar 11, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Sat, Mar 13, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm Wed, Mar 17, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Thur, Mar 18, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Sat, Mar 20, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Here is our website to apply: https://www.svdp-sacramento.org/exodus
Please apply under the Become a Mentor section.
If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a mentor or have any questions, please contact us.
