The mission of the Supporting Teen Opportunities Mentoring Program (STOMP) is to empower at-risk youth in our community to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their personal potential.
STOMP, which stands for Supporting Teen Opportunities Mentoring Program, is a community-based mentoring program for at-risk teens in Eaton County. We match at-risk teens aged 14-19 with adult volunteers aged 21 or older. We match based on similar, shared interests and other factors. As a community-based program, matches spend time together doing activites that they decide upon within the community, such as going to see movies, going for walks, or just grabbing coffee. The time commitment is a minimum of 4 hours per month for a year from the time the adult is matched with a youth, which is a simple as meeting for a couple hours every other week.
