To learn more about our program visit: www.tabormentoringprogram.wordpress.com

Tabor Children's Services is looking for mentors to support the youth of Bucks County. This mentoring program focuses on matching adult volunteers with youth ages 14-21 as they prepare to leave the foster care system. As adolescence is always an uncertain time, these individuals need additional and consistent support as they begin on their journey to independence. Often times, they have little or no familial support. If you would like more information, please contact:

Mission Statement

The mission of the Tabor Children’s Services Mentoring Program is to empower youth ages 16-21 who are preparing to leave the child welfare system through the means of a mentoring relationship. Through a partnership with BCC&Y, a mentoring program has been incorporated as part of the continuum of care of Tabor’s Adolescent Initiative Program (AIP). The AIP supports a mentoring specialist who facilitates a program that helps adult volunteers form healthy and lasting relationships with youth in order to provide them with confidence, stability, and life skills.

Description

Overview: Tabor Children’s Services (Tabor) and Bucks and Lehigh County Children & Youth (BCC&Y) have partnered to create a mentoring program for youth as they prepare to leave the child welfare system.

Situation:

Youth do receive support from their C&Y caseworkers as well as the staff of Tabor and other Diversionary services. However, they are short term supports. Therefore, youth would greatly benefit from a stable mentoring relationship that is without expiration.

Needs:

The needs of the youth vary with each individual. Some need academic guidance while others need career support. All could simply use a friend who is not paid to be there. A mentor could offer insight, consistent support, and introduce them to new ideas.

Vision:

Tabor and BCC&Y firmly believe that, at the very least, all youth deserve one person who wants to be a part of their lives, one person who believes in them unconditionally. Tabor and BCC&Y are delighted to offer support to these youth through helping to facilitate mentoring relationships.
