The mission of Project Vision One to One is to prevent crime, gang involvement, poverty, and substance abuse by giving youth a positive, caring and consistent role model. We also work to provide our youth with the skills and self confidence they need to become community leaders.
One to One creates and supports mentor-youth relationships. Youth and their volunteer mentors spend two hours each week together. The time spent alternates weekly: one week the mentor and youth attend a Power Group activity together, the next they do an activity one-to-one. One part time staff and several student interns manage the program. One to One also hosts a mentoring workshop for all those interested in mentoring. This serves as a training for new volunteers as well as a seminar for those interested in how mentoring helps youth. These training seminars are held every month at our office at Community Action Services, 257 East Center Street in Provo. This training seminar is open to anyone interested in mentoring, whether or not they intend to volunteer as a mentor. Please call 400-5760 to verify date and time of the next training. Refreshments are always served.
