Become a Mentor

What is mentoring?


Mentoring is simple, yet powerful. It’s about friendship, learning, and connections.
Consistency + respect = friendship. You do what you already do—just with a youth.
Sharing what you know + trying new adventures = learning from one another.
Youth + connections = educational, family, and community success.

What is the commitment?

Can you do more than one hour? Absolutely!
