The GoodFutures Youth Program is currently looking for mentors who are dedicated to acting as positive role models for GoodFutures participants. These mentors will not so much guide but demonstrate and encourage empowerment: the certainty that they are in control of their destinies and they have the power to change their lives for the better.
The types of activities that are available are as follows:
Commitments can vary from one session (about 2 to three hours) to 6 months (about 4 hours per month). Never mentored before? Every mentor will receive a Mentor Orientation Training that will vary in length and breadth according to your desired commitment.
We are currently only accepting applicants 18 years of age and older.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please e-mail the GF3 Mentoring and Service Coordinator, Cassy Valenzuela, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
