Bridge City Center for youth
What: This faith-based mentorship program matches an individual man or woman, 25 years or older, with an incarcerated male youth aged 14-20, who does not receive visits from family or friends at Bridge City Center for Youth. We recognize that all young people have dignity and potential – all young people have the capacity to grow into morally and community-minded adults. For mentors no prior experience is required. The main requirement is caring and the ability to listen without judgement.
Where: Bridge City Center for Youth, Bridge City, LA, 70094
More Details: Mentors and mentees are required to commit to visitation on Saturday or Sunday, at least 2x monthly (more if desired), from noon to 4 pm, for approximately one hour (more time if desired by both mentor and mentee parties). A minimum commitment of 6 months is required. Commitment beyond 6 months is desirable if youth and mentor can or would like to continue the match.
