The mentor strives to be the student's friend, role model, motivator and personal advocate. The mentor's purpose is to build self-esteem, confidence and self-worth, supplementing the work of parents, teachers, counselors and other social and educational professionals.

The mentor will be assigned to a young person or group and will be responsible for meeting with the mentee for one hour per week at the center during center hours. A minimum one school-year commitment is requested. The mentor will serve as an example/role model to demonstrate that adults can give and should receive respect. Self-realization and improved self-esteem for the young person are important goals of the relationship. It should be emphasized that the volunteer in no way replaces the parent
