Description

Mentoring Afterschool Program for Success (MAPS) connects youth with caring, role models in a small group atmosphere, while building a community of caring families that support each other. MAPS does this by offering age appropriate afterschool activities once per week and facilitating fun family strengthening activities once per month for all MAPS families, staff, mentors and signigicant people in the lives of all. Children work together with mentors to set goals and plan program activities and projects. This combination of youth development and family engagement strengthens children, families and communities.

MAPS consists of two main components: Afterschool mentoring and family strengthening. We recruit volunteer mentors ages 15 and up to spend one hour per week with a child planning and participating in fun and educational activities. MAPS staff facilitate family strengthening activities and connect families with available resources in the community.

Would you recommend MAPS (Mentoring Afterschool Program for Success)?

This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I started volunteering with MAPS in May 2012 and don't plan to stop volunteering anytime soon. Hanging out with the kids and teaching them new things is great. Even if I'm not having a great day, these kids make my day so much better. Laughing and hugs all around. They make my life better and I know that I make theirs better too.
