How You Become a Mentor

ONE HOUR each week, that’s all it takes!
1. Fill out an application, answer questions about your interests and skills, and whether you have a preference for an age range or gender.

2. Submit to a background check, and attend a two-hour orientation and training workshop where you’ll meet other new mentors and receive a manual with helpful tips and activities you can share with your mentee.

3. You will then receive information about your prospective mentee, and with your approval, an introductory meeting will be scheduled.
