Youth Mentoring Program

Featured Story:
October Social Activity

Each month mentors and mentees are able to gather for a social activity, either virtually or in-person.

In October, the participants discussed traditions and holidays. Mentors and mentees talked about their favorite holidays and learned about two holidays celebrated in the United States:

Halloween and in the Hispanic community, Dia De Los Muertos. Mentees were also delivered Halloween candy and paint supplies to decorate pumpkins.

It was a great learning and bonding experience for both mentors and the youth who participated!

Program Details

The Youth Mentoring Program helps refugee youth ages 15-24 reach their personal, academic, and career goals. Youth are paired with a mentor to meet with weekly for at least one year. Before becoming a mentor, applicants must complete background checks and participate in an interview process. Refugee youth and mentors also partake in monthly social activities with other program participants. Before starting the program, youth participants will meet with the Youth Mentoring Program Supervisor to discuss how this program can help them accomplish their goals.

In the interest of safety, youth and their mentors currently meet virtually.
