Becoming A Mentor

Do you like to have fun?  Do you enjoy spending time with young people?  Do you have at least one hour each week that you are willing to share?  If the answer is yes, you are already on your way to becoming a mentor!

 

A mentor is a caring, adult friend who devotes one hour, once a week to a young person.  A mentor shares fun activities, is a good listener, and offers new experiences.  A mentor offers options and encourages positive choices, promoting higher self-esteem.  By sharing your time and your interests with a young person you can help him/her look to the future with hope.

 

Mentors are not meant to replace parents, guardians, or teachers.  Each mentor is part of a team of caring adults in a young person’s  life.  A mentor is a friend.

 

If you are able to volunteer at least an hour a week for one year or one school year (consistency and commitment are important in the life of a young person), we encourage you to sign up as a mentor with a program near you.  Visit our statewide directory of mentoring programs to learn more about mentoring opportunities in your area.

 

Still have questions?

We encourage you to watch the mentor pair stories below to learn more about mentoring.  You can also contact Mobius and fill out a general inquiry form if you have additional questions, and we can help connect you with a program that matches up with your schedule and interests.
