Be a Mentor

Be-a-MentorBeing a mentor to a child or youth can be one of the most rewarding roles you will play.

We encourage you to think about why you want to be a mentor, and to look in to organizations that support your efforts to be an effective, responsive mentor.

Typically, the steps are as follows:

  1. Organizations will ask you to attend a volunteer orientation.  This is an opportunity for you to learn more about the organization.
  2. Complete a volunteer application form.
  3. Participate in a personal interview.
  4. Join other volunteers in a training workshop.  Here you will learn even more about the opportunity that awaits you and things to keep in mind as a mentor.
