MENTORING. TEACHING. CARING.
CULTIVATING LEADERS YOUTH MENTORING PROGRAMS
Cultivating Leaders Mentor Program matches mentors with elementary, middle, and high school students in one-to-one relationships for an academic year. Through these relationships, as well as recreational and group activities, our matches share friendship, support, and fun. Mentors and mentees get together at least once a week. Both mentors and mentees make a commitment to spend time together throughout the academic year. They can participate in activities that they both enjoy. We plan social group activities on a monthly basis that are open to all participants. We are also available at all times to answer questions, offer support, and help work through challenges that may arise. You can also view additional programs we offer below.
