  • 4 people are interested

TrueNorth Community Services offers mentoring services through a program called TrueMentors. Mentoring provides young people with one-on-one time spent with a volunteer mentor doing things they both enjoy, for about 8 hours each month. Shared interests might include activities such as shooting hoops, playing a board game, going fishing or just spending time together and talking.

Mentoring Opportunities:

  • Community-Based Mentoring: Matches a youth ages 5-15 with a caring adult volunteer through a traditional one-to-one match. Activities can include going fishing, playing games, going to a park, art class, movies, or any other approved activity. The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different situations. Mentors might meet their mentees on weekends, in the evening, or after school at least eight hours per month.
  • Site-Based Mentoring: Matches youth in elementary school with a caring adult or high school volunteer. High school students can be mentors for younger students within the school system. Activities are conducted at predetermined locations, such as a faith-based, business, or a community organization.

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Willingness to make a new friend and a desire to share some fun with a young person
  • Background check required
