Mentors for Youth

We have two volunteer focused programs for high school students: 40 Hours & Beyond and the Influencers Program. In both programs, students are connected with mentors who journey with them and help them in personal development.

Most mentoring happens online through Discord and can be scheduled at times that work for you and your students.

The first Thursdays of the month program shifts to an event geared to invite students. All Community Group Leaders will be trained on using the Discord Server, our online platform, to connect with students outside of Thursday night programs.
