ORGANIZATION: Be A Mentor, Inc.

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Do you want to work with a young person who needs support, care, and a role model?

We are looking for caring, trusting adults in Alameda County to mentor youth impacted by and experiencing the aftermath of a range of violence and to help break the cycle and work in violence prevention.

Be A Mentor is partnering with Alameda County Office of Education to support youth impacted intimate partner violence, parental violence, domestic abuse, etc. This is an in-person mentoring program. You will spend most of your time in the community with your mentee exploring, talking, and learning about and advocating for their needs.

1 on 1 mentoring gives students more opportunities for success regardless of their background. It’s especially important for youth who may not have consistent adults in their lives to connect with.

All mentors are required to complete a background check and training. And our mentoring coordinator will be available for support throughout the program. We ask that you commit to at least 2-hours per week for a full calendar year. Consistency is important to build trust between you and your mentee.

We have a strong need for BIPOC mentors to support and connect with our diverse mentees. Although we welcome everyone with an interest in mentoring to sign up!
