Register for Mentor Orientations in March and April

BECOME A MENTOR! HELP US HELP FAMILIES UP AND OUT OF POVERTY

Mentorship is a shared opportunity for learning and growth. At some point in our past we’ve encountered someone that has made a difference in our lives – Someone who inspired us to reach higher and do better, someone who provided a different perspective or taught us lesson, or was just willing to be there and stand by our side. In order to provide the participants in our Economic Stability Program the best chance of success, each family member aged 12 and above is partnered with an adult mentor. For 1-2 hours a week, mentors will stand shoulder to shoulder with their family member and provide the enthusiasm, coaching, encouragement, and support in helping them achieve their goals.

The #1 job for our Mentors is to BE THERE, by providing support and encouragement. Other skill sets are also useful in being a mentor. Mentor teams need people supporting in the following areas:

  • Home economics, budgeting, long-term planning – for one or both parents
  • Tutoring and coaching for kids and teens – for each child aged 12 and older
  • Life skills and special events / parental breaks – for one or both parents

Each group of mentors will connect with the case manager to discuss progress, problems, and possibilities for improvement regularly. Mentors are a very important part of our team and efforts. As such we provide training, resources, and a dedicated case manager to support you.

Core qualifications for becoming a mentor:

  1. Be at least 21 years of age
  2. Commit to serve as a mentor for one family member for a minimum of 1-2 hours a week for 12 months
  3. Pass a Live Scan background check
