App-based Youth Mentoring for Success and Well-Being

Save to Favorites



What is Positivity Outward?
Positivity Outward empowers youth with mentors for success and well-being. Through an app we built, youth are connected to near peer mentors who guide reflection and action in college and career preparation, self-discovery, and even mental health. The near peer mentors are individuals just ahead of the students in life, so typically college or graduate students. Our vision is for every youth to have the confidence, connection, and tools they need to find and follow their passions.

What is my role as a mentor?

Your role is to guide students to their visions of success and well-being by helping them to reflect through mindful questioning and act through goal setting, while drawing on your personal experiences. Mentees choose their mentors using the information in your profile, which includes tags to represent your strengths and experiences.

How do students grow through this mentorship?

Our program is based on the latest research and evidence for youth mentoring. Your guidance empowers students to develop self-awareness, self-management, and responsible decision-making skills. Students will feel confident, resilient, and connected. This toolkit of skills contributes to long-lasting well-being.

What students will I be mentoring?

Our mentees are motivated youth aged 13-21. There are middle and high school students in rural Montana, freshmen at Montana State University, and we are recruiting students from other universities and high schools across the country. Any student that could benefit from what we provide can sign up! You may be the only mentor in these students’ lives.

What is required to become a mentor?

Almost anyone, anywhere can be a mentor because our program is all through an app! All mentors complete an interview, a background check, Question Persuade Refer (QPR) training for suicide prevention, and a group orientation that covers topics like how to guide reflection and action, along with the neuroscience behind our program. PO covers all mentor training costs.

Mission Statement

Positivity Outward empowers youth to be successful and well with near-peer mentors. Through the app we built, youth aged 13-21 are connected to mentors just ahead of their life stage. The mentors guide reflection and action in college and career preparation, life skills, self-discovery, and even mental health. Our mentees choose the mentors they need, create an individual support network, and achieve their unique goals. Our vision is for every youth to have the confidence, self-awareness, and self-management skills needed to find and follow their passions.


Our app connects rural middle and high school students with near-peer mentors, individuals who are just ahead of the students and at the next stage in life. The students choose their own mentors and are encouraged to build relationships with multiple mentors. The mentors create their profiles to represent their strengths and experiences.

We are recruiting mentees and mentors for our pilot. Currently, we have mentors in 3 countries and more than 15 US states that are supporting motivated youth aged 13-21.
