Are you a youth who wants to connect with a mentor?
Are you a parent, guardian, teacher, or caring adult to a young person who you feel could benefit from a mentor?
Mentors are supportive individuals who build relationships with youth by offering them guidance, support, and encouragement to help with positive and healthy development. Mentors are not meant to replace parents, guardians, or teachers, or to play the role of disciplinarians or decision makers. Rather, they become part of a team of caring adults in a youth’s life to support and encourage positive choices, increased confidence, improved academic achievement, and explore new ideas.
The Mentoring Connector is the only national database of mentoring programs allowing anyone interested in finding a mentor to search for mentoring programs by zip code, ages of youth served, and program type.
