Youth Mentoring Connection awakens at-risk youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that "match" within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood. We further seek to awaken society to the needs, promise and value of this overlooked population.
Our Vision is of a community where young people are truly seen and not just watched, where society understands and accepts its responsibility in meeting the needs of all young people, and where young people bring their gifts back into their communities as productive members of society.
Our primary focus at Youth Mentoring Connection is to generate innovative new mentoring programs that are site-based and have a group dynamic. We then combine life-skills training with the development of supportive relationships between adults and youth. We provide support and training to mentors every step of the way.
This currently manifests itself in the following types of programs:
- Work Site Mentoring
- School Site Mentoring
- Youth Center Programs
- School-To-Work Programs
- Life Skills Workshops
In addition, we serve the mentoring community by offering:
- Program Coordination
- Technical Assistance
- Mentor Tips e-mail campaign
