Mentor a Youth

Many of the youth at Third Way Center are in need of positive adult role models. Mentors develop lasting relationships with our youth, providing guidance and offering them stability in times of crisis. The program strives to help the youth of Third Way Center develop a moral compass while effectively guiding them to make safe and successful life choices.

In order to foster meaningful and productive one-on-one relationships between positive adult role models and our youth we ask that our mentors be able to devote at least one hour every week to their mentee. The role of the mentor is dependent on the needs of the mentee. For example,activities and outings arranged by the mentor, mentee and house treatment staff may consist of grabbing a bite to eat, seeing a movie, trips to the supermarket or mall, tutoring sessions, career advice sessions and much more.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor please complete the Mentor Questionnaire. A member of our Development Department will follow up via email to schedule an interview.
