JRO Female Mentors

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Jim Riley Outreach Inc

Purpose

At JRO, we firmly believe that mentors are a key component to the success of our residents. There are multiple studies that show the importance of this relationship. We see our mentors as the main way to connect our residents with members of the community. These connections will become a support system to help our young women and men grow and sustain them both now and in the future.

Expectations

As a faith-based program, we do ask that out mentors have a strong faith. We also ask that our mentors commit to their mentee for the full length that he/she is in the program, up to two years. The monthly expectations of mentors are to connect with their mentee for a total of six hours a month. The time commitment encompasses the twice a month 'Mentor Nights" on Tuesday nights, as well as other calls/texts throughout the month. We want our mentors to establish trust, maintain confidentiality, and provide guidance and encouragement, as well as share personal experiences and perspectives with their mentees. Our hope is that our mentors are with our young adults for life. The goal would be that your mentee would be invited in to be a part of your family life: that these relationships remain a support system to them long after their time here.
