Become a mentor for our youth
We are looking for you! The LIFE Mentoring program is designed to increase youth’s self-awareness, job readiness, and post-secondary preparation through group formatted mentoring. By working with a group of 3-4 youth in an area school on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, this program offers mentors and mentees an opportunity to connect on a personal level, while sharing experiences and guidance in a semi-structured environment. You don’t need to prepare anything in advance. A Unison facilitator will present a brief lesson that guides the group’s discussions.
Qualities of a Mentor:
Flexible Schedule (bi-weekly classes are during after school hours). Mentors can choose from a variety of times and days of the week.
Respectful of the mentee’s opinions, background, perspectives, and decision-making
Willing to initiate conversation and lead the group conversations when necessary, but able to give youth a comfortable stake in the relationship as well.
21 years or older
Can commit to a year of Mentoring
Persistent and understanding when working with youth
Sharing experience relating to college and the working world.
