The mentors program is created to improve the youth's initiative and encourage them to reach their full potential; with the guidance and support these youths can become positive figures in the community. We believe that each child has the potential to succeed; with the help of dedicated and trained mentors and staff we can enhance the youth's character and self-esteem, while having fun and contributing to the development of youth by allowing them to realize and reach their full potential.

Description

The Boys & Girls Club of Eastern North Carolina, Inc. Mentors Program is a Governor's One-on-One Volunteer Program funded by the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The Mentors Program provides a one-on-one relationship with a youth in need through an adult volunteer willing to give their time, energy, and compassion to ensure redirection of these young lives.

Our program is designed to steer the youth in a positive direction by involving them in new activities, giving them guidance, and assisting them with goals. By developing a friendship with a youth, the volunteer makes a positive impact on every aspect of the young person's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical life. These influences serve to increase the child's self-esteem and emotional well being which ultimately results in altered patterns of behavior leading to a successful future for that youth.

Would you recommend Boys & Girls Club of Eastern North Carolina, Inc. Mentors Program?

It is an essential part of the community. I remember when I was younger, the boys and girls club provided me with a place to release some steam by playing games with friends or even total strangers. Either way, it help project my energy into positive constructive projects / games in a safe environment.
