The Mentoring Partnership of SW PA serves as a resource to more than 140 mentoring programs in our region. We provide mentor training, assist volunteers in finding the mentoring program that fits their interests, help children find the right mentoring program for them, and assist new and existing mentoring programs with program development and implementation. Lastly, we seek to raise awareness of the value of mentoring and the need for mentors.
Mentors make a difference in as little as 2 hours per month in their own communities! Opportunities exist to connect with programs that are searching for mentors in areas such as after-school tutors, story time readers at local libraries, career presenters to speak to local students, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and e-mentors, just to name a few. We help support over 150 agencies in the area provide mentors to children. There are over 1000 children still waiting for a mentor! With such a wide range of programs, we will help you find the right program for you so you can make a difference in the life of a child.
