Become a WYAP Mentor!


Become A Mentor

Every child deserves to have a positive role model who he or she can trust.  The Youth Assistance Program partners a caring adult with a child who needs a mentor.  The mentor and child do activities together, usually one-on-one in the community.  Children matched with a mentor do better in school, have higher self esteem and make better choices.

 

What’s involved?

As a mentor, you will be asked to make a one-year commitment to spending at least one hour, one time per week with the youth while you serve as a positive role model. You will not be expected to spend large sums of money. What is valuable is that you share time together and have fun as you introduce your child to new experiences.

 

How do you get started?

To get started, you'll need to complete the mentor application form.  You will need to agree to a police background and driving check, followed by a personal interview. Prior to being matched, you will attend an orientation session.
