The Washington County Juvenile Department STEP Mentoring Program pairs an adult mentor with an at-risk youth age 12-17. Mentors work with a youth to support them in achieving their individual goals, including academic success, job skills, social and life skills, and partnering with them in positive, pro-social activities. Matches are made based on mutual interest, personalities, and language/cultural needs. Mentors must be at least 20 years old, able to pass a criminal and driving background check, and make a commitment of at least 6 months with 8 hours face to face contact per month with a youth. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience working with youth and to make the difference in the life of a young person.
