Become A Mentor for Youth Struggling During the Pandemic - ALL ONLINE

Save to Favorites


The COVID-19 pandemic challenged most people, but reports suggest that the impact on teenagers has been especially significant. While adults have also reported that COVID-19-related fears and stress have impaired their mental health, young people have been particularly susceptible because of school closures and distance learning, the inability to interact closely with friends, stress, and loneliness. They have fallen behind both academically and socially and need YOU to step in help them get on track!

We need your special skills and perspective to show a young person what opportunities they have and give them the confidence to work towards big goals.

An Academic Mentor is a trusted caring adult that spends at least one hour per week with their mentee using Be A Mentor’s Virtual Mentoring Platform.

Mentors focus on goal setting, homework help, and career exploration. While there may be a focus on homework help in the meetings, these sessions are more than just tutoring. Mentees form a personal relationship with their mentor to build resilience, social engagement, and a support network.

Virtual mentoring removes barriers of distance, requires no commute time, and can offer a flexible schedule. However, mentors must be in the United States. Due to our current background check system we are unable to accept anyone outside of the US at this time.
