About

You can volunteer just one hour a week right in your own neighborhood and make a huge difference in a young person’s life! The Norwalk Mentor Program is looking for caring individuals who can spare just one hour a week to be a "mentor".

Following a brief training, you will be matched with a student in one of the Norwalk Public Schools. You choose the school and the grade. You then meet with your "mentee" at school once a week for an hour - talking, playing games, reading or enjoying other activities. You can be that student’s friend, confidante, role model and advocate.

As a mentor you will feel rewarded just seeing the difference you make as the young person you mentor matures and grows to reach his or her full potential.

If you’re interested in having a positive influence on a child or teen, contact Nancy Pratt, Director of the Norwalk Mentor Program at The Human Services Council at npratt@hscct.org or 203-849-1111.
