Mentors are advisers, teachers, funding sources, and guides about classes, careers, jobs, graduate schools, and life choices. Above all, mentors are motivators and role models, who believe in their mentees, see their potential and help them get to where they want to go 1. Children and adolescents are at crucial periods of development. Youth are vulnerable to taking the wrong step, which is why mentors are essential for them 2. Mentors can share their worldviews, experiences, knowledge, support, and advice and provide a positive influence. By introducing youth to new experiences and sharing positive values, mentors can help young people avoid negative behaviors and succeed 3. Youth with mentors have an increased likelihood of going to college, better attitudes toward school, increased social and emotional development, and improved self-esteem. It is the goal of B.A.S.E. NYC Community Mentoring Program to provide:
Coaching and motivate at-risk minority youth into becoming the best versions of themselves;
Pair participants with a mentor providing academic support, along with social and personal development;
Endow participants with the tools and resources necessary to transform them into successful contributors to society, creating long-lasting relationships with their community.
Per school year, B.A.S.E. NYC Community Mentoring Program will:
Match 75 at-risk youth with a mentor to assist in the personal development and academic support;
Increase the academic performance and attendance of the youth participants by 80%;
Decrease truancy and other deviant youth behavior amongst participants by 90%
We are looking for Mentors to provide academic and personal development to at-risk minority youth. It is the goal of B.A.S.E. NYC to profoundly impact individuals' and family's life, which is critical to strengthening the local community as a whole. B.A.S.E. Training will be provided to all mentors along with curriculum to use with the children. There is a screening process completed for each prospective Mentor. An SCR clearance is needed. A commitment of ten months is requested.
