Mentoring Works!

Mentorship for youth in foster care can be life changing. We may not see the immediate impact but statistically speaking mentoring help improve graduation outcomes, grades, mental health, self-regulation and the ability to make smarter choices.

We want mentors that are kind, caring, willing to listen and to maintain non-judgment!! If that is you and you care about these youth that all odds are against them, please sign-up at:

beamentor.org

This is a full, One Year Commitment with a minimum of 2 hours per week. This time is decided by you, the foster parent and the mentee. There is no set schedule or agenda for the meetings. The most important requirement is that you are committed, care and aren't going to falter on the relationship.

If you have any questions, please reach out to sbrooke@beamentor.org
