Youth Mentoring Program
SEICAA’s Youth Mentoring program began with a federal Mentoring Children of Prisoners grant and has continued with the support of United Way, Corporation for National Services, and Americorp VISTA program support.
Since it’s conception in 2004, over 130 mentors have given over 27,500 hours of their time making a difference in 120 children’s lives.
How do I become a mentor?
To become a mentor, one must complete the following:
- Criminal Background check (provided by SEICAA)
- Reference Checks
Mentoring visits occur at the child’s school and SEICAA approved off-school grounds locations. In order to have a successful relationship with a child, one hour a week and a years’ commitment is the minimum requirement.
