Strengthening our central Vermont community by connecting youth with adult mentors to support and empower young people for successful futures as productive, responsible, and caring individuals.
Founded in 1998, Girls/Boyz First Mentoring has served over 200 youth between the ages of 8-18 and is the longest running mentoring program in our region. We serve children who reside in Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, Montpelier and Worcester. We are a one-on-one, community-based mentoring program that matches young people with adult mentors to meet weekly in the communities where they live. . We carefully screen, train and support our mentors to support and encourage children to explore their interests, follow their dreams and overcome barriers to accessing educational and aspirational opportunities. While promoting mental health, good decision-making and relationship building, the simple act of caring and believing in a child helps them believe in themselves.
