VIP Mentor and Mentee
Bobby won the Governor's Service Award for Mentor of the Year. VIP has the best mentors!

Volunteers will become involved in a year-long mentoring relationship with a young person who lives in the city of Detroit, and who needs your support and guidance. You and your mentee will meet for 6-8 hours a month for fun outings and activities. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in planned group outings throughout the year, including various sporting and cultural events, an annual bowl-a-thon, and other fun activities. All volunteers attend a mentor orientation/training session, and receive ongoing mentor education and support throughout the match relationship. If you have the desire to make a real difference in a child’s life, become a VIP Mentor , because "Children First" is what we truly believe!

Mission Statement

VIP creates sustainable, meaningful mentoring relationships for children in the tri-county area, especially the City of Detroit, whose difficult circumstances seriously compromise their opportunities to succeed. Mentoring relationships are created early in the child's life and are supported long-term in order to prevent and curb behaviors that could lead to the child's involvement with the judicial system.


We offer mentoring to children in various settings(ie)school, community and site. Community based mentoring is done on a 1-1 basis, school and site based is 2-3 to 1 ratio. School mentoring is done for the complete school year during a class period and site based is done year round . A facilitator is on site during school and site based programs. All programs offer mentor support and mentor/mentee outings during the year. If you have wanted to make a difference in a childs life then VIP is the place for you. Come on over to VIP where "Children First" is our motto.
