Mentor - Exodus Project

Be a force for change in a person’s life. Become a volunteer mentor with Exodus Project, an interfaith mentorship program for men and women coming out of Sacramento County correctional facilities. The program, which matches men and women leaving incarceration with a mentor of the same gender, supports developing and sustaining the tools and resources necessary for successful re-entry and meaningful life.

Beginning during the last months of incarceration, one-to-one mentoring continues for six months post-release. In addition to non-judgmental listening and encouragement, mentors offer support to participants in a variety of ways.

  • "Meet you at the gate" to assist participants immediately upon release.
  • Connecting participants with resources and opportunities.
  • Reconnecting participants with their faith communities.

Mentors are men and women of all faith backgrounds who have completed an 18-hour training program consisting of four sessions over a two-week period. Upcoming training dates: Thursdays, August 19 and August 26 - 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm; Saturdays, August 21 and August 28 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

After completing the initial training, mentors and participants will meet between one and three times per month, with additional contact through phone, text, and/or email. The structure of each individual partnership will be somewhat flexible and determined by participant needs and mentor capacity, within the guidelines of our program. A mentor commitment of five to eight hours per month is requested.

Please apply on our website under the "Become a Mentor" section. https://www.svdp-sacramento.org/exodus
