Positive adult role models make an enormous impact
Mentors offer guidance and stability during times of both crisis and success. The mentorship program focuses on helping our youth develop a moral compass and smart decision-making skills. These invaluable skills have been proven to help navigate through the ups and downs of life.
In order to foster meaningful and productive one-on-one relationships between adult role models and our youth, we ask that our mentors be able to devote at least one hour every week to their mentee. The role of the mentor is dependent on the needs of the mentee. For example, activities and outings arranged by the mentor, mentee, and house treatment staff may consist of grabbing a bite to eat, seeing a movie, trips to the grocery store or mall, tutoring sessions, career advice sessions, and much more.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete the Mentor Questionnaire. A member of our Development Department will follow up via email to schedule an interview.

We do require that applicants be able to commit to a weekly meeting with their mentee. We understand that this is a large commitment of time for those who wish to make a difference in the life of a teen which is why we offer a variety of volunteer opportunities.
