The Mentoring Program with Youth Emergency Services creates a special opportunity for youth to develop a positive, sustained relationship with a trustworthy and influential adult.
As a mentor, we ask you to...
- be at least 21 years old
- have an approved application process which includes an application, background check, interview, and orientation, along with three references that have completed a phone and/or email questionnaire
- commit to the program for at least 12 months
- make contact with your youth for at least four hours a month
- respect your youth's privacy and maintain confidentiality
If any of these items are not completed and/or approved, or the Mentoring Coordinator believes an applicant may not be the best fit for the program, YES has the right to deny any possible mentor.
How to become a mentor:
YES is always in need of mentors that are committed to understanding the challenges our youth face each day. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Maren Larsen, Mentor and Volunteer Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the process.
