TRUE Mentors hosts many events throughout the month and we are constantly updating our calendar. Each calendar event contains contact information in case you have any questions. We look forward to impacting the lives of children in Hoboken with you.
Hoboken Pizza Fest is back and it’s better than ever! Join Hoboken Happy Hours in partnership with True Mentors for the 2nd Annual Hoboken Pizza Fest on Saturday, October 13th at Our Lady of Grace Church. Round up your crew, bring your family, and get ready to sample slices from some of the best spots in Hoboken – or dare we say New Jersey?
During the school year, TRUE Mentors offers free weekly enrichment program on Tuesday evenings at the Boys & Girls Club of Hoboken (123 Jefferson Street) from 6 – 8 p.m. Our Clubs change monthly, with every month featuring a different theme. Clubs are offered on a variety of different enrichment topics including art, science, cooking, and more! Between clubs we take free field trips to for youth to explore local businesses, different career options, and community resources.
The classes are open to all children in 2nd-8th grade, and they create an opportunity for children to interact with other children and the volunteers.
An example class structure is below:
6:00 – 6:30pm Welcome & Small Group Activity
6:30 – 7:45pm Snack & Question of the Day
7:45 – 8:00pm Club Activity
All mentors are required to attend our 2-hour, Mentor Training Program. This training is designed to help our new mentors develop a deeper understanding of our mentoring programs, what it means to be a TRUE mentor and a chance to hear how our current mentors are making an impact on children in Hoboken. Reserve your spot for the next Mentor Training.
