Becoming A Mentor
Become A Mentor Today...
Becoming a mentor is well worth the effort, so be persistent in your efforts to complete the process, and patient with the process as we believe in an organic approach to match you both! We know the best matches with youth who have experienced difficulty may be with a caring adult who has experienced adversity as well — so be upfront in the screening process and know that your presence and honesty important to building trust and longevity in any relationship.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a mentor with The Colorado Teen Project, mentoring youth in transition in Colorado. We work to ensure the youth we serve are given the opportunity to have a loving, caring adult in their lives and help them develop lasting relationships within their communities. We have put together resources, mentor training materials and mentor recruitment tools to address the unique needs of the youth we serve.
Being a mentor is one of the most important things you can do. Two hours a week can make a big difference in a young person's life. The application, screening, matching, and training process can easily take up to a month and sometimes longer to complete. The Colorado Teen Project seeks to ensure the quality of our matches and is concerned with the well being and safety of our clients and volunteers.
