One of the most powerful gifts mentors give to teens in our program is simply to listen.

Mentors must be 25 years old or older, and demonstrate character traits of integrity, respect, caring, and the ability to have fun!



Our year-round mentoring program is designed to help foster youth who support from a mentor that is there to listen, provide guidance, and help create pathways for their future.

During camp, our volunteers have an opportunity to serve, engage and build relationships with campers. Following camp, volunteers can apply to become mentors, and upon completion of the process they are strategically matched with their mentee.
