Mission Statement

4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults. 4-H Mentoring is committed to providing an environment which fosters belonging, independence, generosity and mastery among mentors, youth, and families. The four essential elements of positive youth development.

Description

4-H Mentoring of Utah County is a program which began in 2001 and is designed for youth, ages 9-15, and their families. Youth are matched with one-to-one with young adult mentors, who establish caring relationships with identified youth. All mentors are screened before being matched (interview, reference and background check). This program allows youth to develop their interpersonal and academic skills by participating in structured recreation, community service, and community youth groups.

Mentors will:

  • Be a mentor to a child in Utah County
  • Be a guide, advocate, friend and role model
  • Help your mentee feel a sense of belonging, develop independence, understand the importance of generosity, and master new skills
  • Introduce your mentee to new and different environments
  • Meet and socialize monthly with the other mentors at the monthly provided activity for you and your mentee
  • Give an hour of time each week for one full year
  • Make a year commitment to mentor a youth
  • Meet 4 times per month (usually once each week) with the youth you mentor

What youth need most is a caring adult who peacefully resolves conflicts and communicates in a healthy way. They need someone to trust and who trusts them.
