Mentors in the Movement of Youth Program help to empower children and youth to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The mentoring program uses college student volunteers to commit to support, guidance, and friendship to a young person. By becoming part of the social network of young adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor can help the youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.
As a Movement of Youth Mentor, you will collaborate with parents and mentors from multiple universities to contribute to the maturation, progress, and goal achievement of a young person. Beyond the personal fulfillment of making a contribution to the community and an individual, mentors receive a number of benefits including ongoing professional development, participation in a mentor support group, complimentary tickets to community events, participant recognition events, and academic course credit (where applicable).
