Description

Mentoring Ex-Offenders Through mentoring, your expertise helps create a positive influence on someone in need. Our mentors need to be non-judgmental, empathetic, and open to diversity. The community of adults which we serve often struggle with re-entry and need a mentor's guidance to get through this difficult time. You will be given training and support to aid you efforts in their revival. In this twelve month span, you will meet with your mentee for six hours a month. Our results show, this time together matters. When we pair mentors with these people we have shown a high success rate of ex-offenders not violating their parole, staying employed, and ultimately not going back to prison. In 2016 90% of matched mentee met their criminal justice requirements. Plus there will be opportunities for you to attend engaging workshops and fundraisers where you will be able to meet other volunteers like yourself. How can you find out more?
