The Be A Mentor Program pairs caring adult volunteers from the community with youth in one-to-one relationships. Mentors give of their time to be a friend, answering questions, and providing guidance.

The purpose of the mentoring relationship is to help youth develop their full potential, both in and outside of the classroom.
