Mission Statement

The mission of Steuben County Youth Mentoring Program is to foster positive skills, character and social development in youth by facilitating an ongoing relationship with a caring adult who can provide support, guidance, and assistance on a one-to-one basis, and who serves as a friend, role model, and advocate.

Description

Steuben Mentoring screens and matches trained volunteers with youth ages 10 to 18 in a one-to-one relationship.

Volunteers serve as positive role models, supporters, and friends the youth can count on. Matches meet at the times and places of their choice in the community, to share a variety of social, recreational, and community service activities.

Mentoring's benefits work both ways: Studies show that mentoring has a positive effect on the youth's academics, attitude, and self-esteem, while mentors get the satisfaction of directly impacting a young person's life for the better.
