Get Involved

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 volunteer.

As a mentor, we ask you to...

  • be at least 24 years old
  • have an approved application process which includes a written application, background check, reference check, interview, and orientation
  • commit to the program for at least 12 months
  • make contact with your youth for at least four hours a month
  • participate in one training session per year of service 
  • respect your youth's privacy and maintain confidentiality
  • have an active driver's license (preferred) 

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:

We are not currently accepting new mentor applications due to COVID-19.
