Become a Family Advocate or Youth Mentor

When you were young, did you know how to study for a test or make plans for college? Do you remember wanting your first car or looking for a part-time job? Simple things that may seem easy or straightforward to you now may be a complete mystery to a young person. Mentoring relationships are shared opportunities for learning and growth. Many mentors say that the rewards they gain are just as substantial as those for their mentees.
