Dominion Life Mentoring Services Program is a 501 (c) 3 faith-based community outreach resource center and organization. It was established in 2008 to help at-risk youth and their families overcome hardships in their lives. DLM Mentoring Services Program is designed to empower youth and families through collaborative partnerships in the fields of education, arts & entertainment, business, government, media, religion, and family. We work in conjunction with all stakeholders in local school personnel, child and family services agencies, probation officers, judges, parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts who play a part in growth and development and advancement of a child.

DLM Mentoring Services Program, with its experience staff, has worked for over (8) eight years with youth and their families to provide them with integrity and godly character. DLM and its qualified team have helped and inspired over 500 youth in the New Orleans area to elevate their leadership skills, behavior and attitudes to the betterment of the youth and family. We have impacted the lives of over 1000 youth in schools, detention centers, and churches in Iberville, Ascension, and East Baton Rouge parishes. Our goal is to make a positive impact for positive change on the lives of youth and their families in all 64 parishes by 2018.

What is a Mentor

A mentor is defined as a wise and trusted teacher and counselor. Mentors are role models, friends, good listeners, and most of all, caring adults willing to volunteer to help a young person succeed. Mentors assist mentees by listening to mentees' problems or concerns, providing advice on decisions such as education and job opportunities. Mentors also are mandated reporters - this means they have a responsibility to report knowledge of abuse.
