Mentor

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 fill out the below Mentoring Application and OneSource Background Check Form.  YES' Mentoring application and OneSource forms can be downloaded and emailed to Maren Larsen mlarsen@yesomaha.org
