The Youth Mentor
program assigns volunteer mentors to children who are at-risk of educational failure, and former foster youth who are transitioning into adulthood without family support. These at-risk youth are not currently involved in any court system, but are identified as being at-risk of educational failure (truancy) or of entering the juvenile justice or child welfare systems.
As with CASA volunteers, Mentors meet weekly with the youth, helping to:
- Define and accomplish goals
- Introduce youth to opportunties and potential life paths that they never dreamed possible
- As important role models, Mentors strive to navigate at-risk youth and former foster youth toward positive outcomes that will help these young people transition successfully into adulthood.
