To help build a healthy community
Become a mentor to a youth in need of a positive caring adult ! The 4C Mentoring Program provides trained, committed mentors to youth, ages 13 to 17, involved in the King Country Juvenile Justice system. We have a strong demand for mentoring this growing population of youth . We are looking for mentors to work with youth who are involved in drug court and on probation . There are a disproportionately number of African American youth on the wait list for a mentor.
We match mentors by interests, compatibility, and gender. The 4C Coalition formed in 1999 in response to the high number of youth that "fall through the cracks," become truant, or drop out. Often, family support is lacking. The mission of our mentoring program is to provide youth a healthy and productive mentoring relationship, more opportunities for success, and resources for mentees and their families.
Mentors commit to one year. They receive research-based training along with regular scheduled support, as well as support on call. Many mentor/mentee relationships continue well beyond one year. Our mentors commonly say that mentoring is one of the most rewarding experiences they've ever had.
