Mentoring Services

 

 


 

 Serving youth-in-need in San Mateo and Northern Santa Clara Counties, our mentoring program matches youth with adult volunteers. The youth in our program are referred by teachers, counselors, therapists, social workers, and other youth professionals. Our youth are youth-in-need,  meaning they may be facing problems at home with their families, struggling at school, or experiencing issues in their neighborhood.

 

These young people are ages 8-17 and need a positive and supportive adult in their lives. Volunteer mentors serve as a friend and role model, making a significant and measurable difference in a young person’s self-esteem, social skills, school performance, and decision-making skills.
