Young Adult Mentors

Our young adults work alongside Mentors that are active listeners and who are enthusiastic about helping them achieve their goals. Our Mentors are teachers, sponsors, advisors, agents, role models, coaches, confidantes and so much more. It's because of our mentors that our Young Adults feel seen, loved and valued.

As iron sharpens iron,
so a friend sharpens a friend.
