Mentoring Plus is dedicated to empowering disadvantaged youth and their families to fulfill their potential and to contribute to the well-being of the community by forming relationships based on mutual trust, compassion, and respect. Mentoring Plus provides 1 adult mentor for each youth enrolled in the Program, as well as intensive case management services for each youth's family. The mentoring happens during our in-house Programs in the evenings. Youth are ages 13+ and are identified and referred to our Program by various sources, including school counselors, teachers, social workers and therapists. Mentoring Plus was founded in 2009. Mentors must be 21 years of age or older and are asked to commit to attending Program (2.5 hrs) once per week for a year. Mentors must complete an application, background check and training before being matched with a youth.
