It takes one person to make a difference in the life of a child.

By sharing fun activities and exposing a child to new experiences, mentors encourage positive choices, promote high self-esteem, support academic achievement and introduce their mentee to new ideas.


All mentors are required to complete a two hour training session. You’ll learn the requirements, and get some tips on how to make a difference. Regular two-hour training sessions are held once per month August-November and January-February. Sessions are conducted at other times as needed; please contact the Mentor Program to put your name on a list. If your group of 15 or more people would like to be trained together, we can arrange a training at a mutually-convenient time and place.
