Mentoring matches meet one-on-one, at school, one day per week, for 30-minutes. The program operates September-May, during regular school hours.
Mentoring provides an opportunity for [adult] mentors and [student] mentees to connect over common interests and experiences, build a relationship, and support each other in times of need. This solid foundation enables mentors to empower their mentees to be their very best self!
Adult members from the local communities we partner with apply to be a mentor in the program. Mentor applications are processed through a multi-phase approach by program staff and include, but are not limited to, a comprehensive background check, reference checks, and an in-person interview with program staff before a final decision on placement with the program are determined.
Please click on the link above to apply to be a mentor with the Mentor Chippewa Program. Once your application is received a member of our staff will be in touch with you regarding the next steps in the application process.
As a program, we offer Mentors education and training opportunities throughout the year as well as a variety of resources to support your mentoring match via our online library – simply click the link to access these helpful tools.
