The Vermont Mentoring Grants

Mobius, Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership, envisions a future in which every young person in Vermont who would benefit from having a mentor has one. In order to achieve this goal, we have collaborated with our funding partners to create the Vermont Mentoring Grants. With funding support from the Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children, the A.D. Henderson Foundation, and the Vermont Department for Children and Families, Mobius strives to help create and establish new adult-to-youth mentoring programs, while also supporting and enhancing the quality of existing mentoring programs. We support this critical work by making grants and providing technical assistance, with the ultimate goal of sustainably increasing the quality and quantity of mentoring matches statewide.
