November is MENTOR national's Thank Your Mentor month! How could you say thanks to your mentor? #ThankYourMentor Thank your mentor. Become a mentor.
Becoming a volunteer mentor with Trusted Mentors, will be one of your most gratifying volunteer experience. Trusted Mentors is the leading provider of mentoring relationships that empower at risk adults that want to remain housed and avoid incarceration or returning to the streets. By volunteering an average of 6 hours a month for a year, our mentors help transform lives - and our community. Mentors work individually but are not alone. All mentors receive quality training that helps the mentor be successful and ongoing support from professional staff. In return they have the opportunity to build new skills and form new friendships.
Desired skills and expertise: Our trusted mentors come from all walks of life. From business professionals to the formerly homeless, our mentors are equipped with the training needed to begin strategically sharing their knowledge and life experiences with a mentee - helping them make the positive changes they desire for a more successful future.
Put forth your time with an individual in need with Trusted Mentors. Everyone signs up for a year at a time and you would be carefully matched with an adult. Each month you get to spend six hours with your mentee. For your convenience there are two information sessions each month, where you can find out more information about our services.

Trusted Mentors connects trained volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison.
Volunteer mentors join an organization which is passionate about mentoring. They are provided training and a personal interview before being matched one-on-one with an individual or family in a homeless prevention program. On-going support is provided during the match. Volunteers sign up for 6 hours a month for a year and make a lasting impact on the community of Indianapolis.
We mentor three vulnerable populations who face unique challenges including:
Young adults (18-24) who are aging out of foster care, diagnosed with a mental health issue, or young mothers struggling economically. These young adults have a higher likelihood of community disengagement, homelessness or incarceration.
Adults (25 and older) who face unique social-economic or social emotional challenges, e.g., chronic homelessness, suffering substance abuse and/or mental illness.
Adults re-entering the population after incarceration. Mentoring can start pre or post-release for those who desire a supportive network that assists with employment and successful reintegration.
With the support of a mentor, over 90% of our mentees succeed at remaining housed and out of prison.
