Mentor Match

  • 10 people are interested

Mentor Match is a mentoring program that has served youth with disabilities since 1985. Its goal is to help young people with disabilities meet their full potential for personal development and independence by matching them with a caring adult mentor.

Matches are expected to initially commit to one year. Over the course of that year, matches meet in person for at least four to six hours a month, and are in touch on a weekly basis by phone or email. Mentees and mentors do all sorts of things together: work on personal goals, go to museums and sports games, play games, do art projects, and more!

The program is free of charge to participants. The Mentor Match staff provides personal, on-going support to participants, helping each match thrive and succeed.

We accept any volunteers that are at least 18 years old, are willing to travel into or around the Boston area, and are willing to undergo background and reference checks.
