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!
Mentoring matches meet one-on-one, at school, one day per week, for 30-minutes. The program operates September-May, during regular school hours.
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.
