Consistent and Dependable Guidance, Support and Fun
Children’s Mentoring Connection’s success depends on the life-changing relationships built through the involvement of our volunteers. Volunteers work closely with a case manager to provide mentoring resources necessary to help guide a child, 6-14 years old, toward becoming a competent, caring and confident individual.
It’s easy. As simple as a walk in the park, watching a movie, taking a bike ride, baking cookies, talking on the phone, helping with homework, sledding, hiking, and sometimes just talking over life’s issues.
Children’s Mentoring Connection offers many mentoring options designed to meet varying volunteer needs. Mentoring programs offer six or twelve month options. Mentors are encouraged to meet 2-3 times a month.
- Traditional Mentoring: A volunteer is matched in a one-on-one mentoring relationship with a child.
- Couple Mentoring: The couple works together and individually with the child depending on the activity.
- Family Mentoring: All members of a family are active volunteers and are matched with a child.
- 2-2-1 Buddies: Two volunteers share the time and responsibility of being matched with a child.
- School-based Mentoring: This program may be offered at your child’s school. A volunteer is matched with a small group of children within the structure of the school-based program.
- Pals: A volunteer engages in activities with youth from our waiting list. Pals are encouraged to volunteer one time per month.
- Group Pals: Business, church, civic, social and community groups work with small groups of youth from our waiting list.
