The Washington County Juvenile Department provides at-risk youth with a volunteer mentor from the community. The goal of the Mentoring Program is to build on a youth’s motivation, inspire hope, and treat all youth and families with dignity, respect, and an awareness of the impact of trauma on their lives. A mentor is a person assigned specifically to a youth to assist them in reaching personal goals, such as academic success, obtaining employment, and developing social skills. Mentors will also engage in positive, pro-social activities with their youth. Matches are made based on mutual interests, personalities, location, and language/cultural needs.
Applicants must pass a criminal background check and have a good driving record. We ask for a 6 month commitment with 8 hours of face to face contact per month with your mentee and weekly contact. An initial 5 hour training is required with additional training opportunities.
