Mentoring

They don't need a superhero. They just need a friend.

Change both your life and that of your mentee!

For just a few hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of a teenager or young adult.  And it’s as easy as inviting them along on a bike ride or a trip to the movies. These young adults have all been recommended by someone who knows them and who truly believes that they will benefit from sharing time with a positive adult role model.

All we need is you!

You don’t need to be a hero or a counselor. All you need to be is a friend.

“You know what my mentee told me recently? She said, ‘Ever since I’ve known you, I’ve become braver.”

What We Ask

Spectrum asks that each mentor:

  • Commit to spending 4 hours per month spread out over 2-4 sessions that fit both of your schedules
  • Commit to match for a minimum of one year
  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have access to an insured automobile and current license or have access to reliable means of transportation
  • Pass a background check
