Serves boys and girls, ages 6-17 in Merrimack County, New Hampshire. 1:1 mentoring model with three component mentoring choices: community-based, site-based, and site-based plus. Children identified as in need are thoughtfully matched with volunteer mentors with the minimum expectation they will meet for a year's time. Mentor's contribute to successful outcomes in helping children do well at home, in school, and in the community.
Mentors are enthusiastic people ages 16 and up who volunteer their time in a healthy 1:1 relationship with a youngster, based in mutual trust and respect, with oversight by an agency engaged in best practices in the mentoring field. Mentors are screened, trained, and supported throughout the mentorship.
