Being a mentor is about communicating in a meaningful way. It’s about being yourself and sharing your experience and your perspective on life. As a mentor, you’ll form a one-to-one relationship with a young person who needs your support and attention. You’ll be a positive role model and a trusted friend. And, as with any friendship, you’ll get a lot out of it, too.
That’s all it takes! You volunteer to spend an hour a week with your mentee, or more if you prefer, in a school or community-based setting.
You can visit our Become a Mentor page and fill out our inquiry form or if you have questions before taking that step you can call MENTOR Rhode Island at 401-732-7700. We’ll be happy to answer your questions and send you an application if you decide to volunteer.
