Mentors at The Home are adult volunteers who are dedicated to spending two to four hours of quality time per week with a mentee over the course of a year or more.
Mentors serve as a source of support, guidance and friendship to children and teens who often do not have positive adult connections in their lives. Our mentors are encouraged to participate in community activities with their mentees, teach youth skills that will benefit them in the future and introduce them to new experiences when appropriate. Some of the activities our kids enjoy include bike riding, seeing a movie, going to a baseball game or a show, grabbing a slice of pizze, reading a book together, fishing, ice skating or just taking a drive.
Many of our older youth and teenagers appreciate when their mentors teach them how to take public transportation, assist them in finding a part time job, or help them explore continued education opportunities.
