Future for KIDS is looking for dedicated volunteers to join our mentor program!
As a mentor in the Discover Your Future program, you will be working in a small group of youth with a provided curriculum in a supportive & structured environment. Our goal is to connect the youth with a positive role model (mentor) to help promote resiliency against Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s). ACE’s consist of emotional or physical trauma that takes places before the age of 18 including all forms of abuse, neglect, or household dysfunction. Mentorship is the proven top strategy to reduce ACE’s.
Commitment: 2.5 hours, once a week for a 13 or 26 week commitment during the school year
Training: Mandatory training is provided for all mentors
