What is a Youth Mentor?

A youth mentor is there to let the youth feel seen and heard and help them discover their purpose and self worth. It is the  mentor’s responsibility to keep a safe environment, emotionally and physically, foster different weekly discussions, and guide the youth in a positive group activity. 

 

What does a typical mentoring session look like?

A Youth Mentors meet with the youth groups once per week. Our program lasts 1.5 hours. We begin with a 15-20 minute planned discussion,followed by a group activity, such as hiking, CrossFit Kids, and yoga. If our mentors have a skill they’d like to share we would love to plan an activity around it.

How often can I volunteer?

Consistency is important during youth mentoring. You can volunteer as much as you like, but we ask that you volunteer a minimum of once per month, during the 4 month program.

What are the youth age groups?

 A youth mentor can choose which age group they feel most comfortable with; teens (13-17) or preteens (8-12). The group size is a maximum of 8 youth and there will always be a lead Mentor with the group.

What are the dates and times of the program?

Our School hours are as follows:

  • Tuesday 4:00pm-5:30pm (Preteens)
  • Wednesday’s 3:00pm-4:30pm (Teens)
