MENT2B

This Mentor/Mentee program is designed to provide emotional, motivational, and academic support for at risk youth through a community of trained adult Mentors who are committed to their success.  

Mentors: 

Growing up, did you have someone outside of your family that you considered an important person in your life? Someone that inspired or shaped you for who you are today? Many of our youth today grow up missing that connection, that mentor.

When asked, 1 in 3 children want a mentor. Those who have a mentor are 52% less likely to skip school, 46% less likely than their peers to begin using drugs, they trust their parents more and communicate better with them!

Mentors meet at least 2-4 times a month with their Mentees! They may participate in activities such as playing sports, going to the park, riding bikes, going for ice cream, or other activities the Mentee may enjoy. There are monthly opportunities to attend group activities, such as movie night, Wenatchee Wild Games, River Rafting, etc.

Mentors are there to provide emotional and social support while having fun!
