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 Maiker 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.
