Mission Statement

To improve the lives of children and promote strong families by partnering with community organizations to provide services to strengthen individuals, families and community life."

Description

The Youth Mentoring Program is voluntary for both the mentor and mentee with parental permission mandatory for all children and youth. Mentors commit to the match for one year and meet with their mentees for at least two hours weekly, focusing on community-based activities that are basically just "fun", but also expand their horizons and support positive attitudes. The average length of the mentee/mentor match withing our organization is two years. On a monthly basis our program has "Match Night", on which we've had activities such as bowling, 'Name That Tune' Night, a beach picnic, Take A Kid Fishing Day, and a workshop with TD Banknorth about the importance and value of responsible banking and saving.
