About

It is amazing what a positive, supportive relationship with a caring adult can do for a child!

Team Up - Community Based Program - All you have to do is be a friend! Meet weekly with your mentee and participate in everyday activities, such as playing basketball or going to the beach. The match relationship contributes to the achievement of personal, social and educational growth for the child. This program requires a commitment of a few hours a week for one year.

Face Forward Group/One-on-one Mentoring - Do you have life experiences and success stories you could share with a mentee? This is a federally funded program which matches volunteer mentors with first time juvenile offenders, ages 16 - 24. The goal is to provide consistent adult role models to help youth handle the challenges of life. Groups meet together for the first 14 weeks. One-on-one mentoring continues for the rest of the year.

Team Up Mentoring provides its members with fun events and supervision of the match pairs.
