Champions For Learning will be recruiting new mentors to be matched with students in Spring of 2025.

About the Opportunity : Change the life of a young person by becoming a mentor in Champions For Learning’s Take Stock in Children program. Mentors are often the first non-authority, adult relationship a student has, and provide guidance, motivation, support, and role-modeling to grow a mentee’s life skills.

We carefully match mentors with a high school student of the same gender. Meetings occur on school grounds, over lunch or virtually through a monitored video app.The program requires 16 mentor/mentee sessions per academic year, but you may meet more often if you choose. You may request a specific school but please keep in mind this may delay your match until a student that meets your requests is accepted into the program.

The Volunteer Role : Mentors are a trusted advocate and an excellent listener, helping the student reach their goals and develop life skills. We will provide you with guidelines and benchmarks to help inform the focus of your meetings. Overall, your role is to support your mentee and ensure they take advantage of resources and opportunities available. If at any point you have concerns about your mentee, please contact our staff to help.

Requirements : There are no skills or experience required to become a mentor. Mentorship continues with the same student through their high school graduation to continue building a relationship with the student and family. To ensure the safety of our students, mentor candidates should be residents of Lee or Collier County for at least 2 years (whether year-round or seasonal residency). Background and reference checks will also be conducted. Depending on the time of year, you may wait several months before being matched.
