Mission Statement

"The YWCA is a women's membership movement nourished by its roots in the Christian faith and sustained by the richness of many beliefs and values, strengthened by diversity, the Association draws together mambers who strive to create opportunities for women's growth, leadership and power to attain a common vision: peace, justice freedom and dignity for all people. The YWCA will thrust its collective power toward the elimination of recism, wherever it exists, and by any means necessary."

Description

What is Mentoring? A matter of trust. Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings young people together with caring individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the competence and character of the mentee. A mentor is an adult who, along with parents, provides a young person with support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and constructive example. Mentors are good listeners, people who care, people who want to help young people bring out strengths that are already there. A mentor is not a foster parent, therapist, parole officer, or cool peer. The adults we recruit to serve as volunteer mentors must be at least 18.

All potential volunteer mentors undergo a lengthy screening and training process before they are matched with a youth.

Volunteer mentors are required to spend at least two hours per week with their youth during the course of the match. Once a match is made, the Program Manager will supervise the relationship for one year.
