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. during the school year. Our three-week long clubs change monthly, with every month offering two different club options for children. Clubs are offered on a variety of different enrichment topics including art, science, cooking, and more! Between clubs we take free field trips to local businesses for youth to explore local businesses, different career options, and community resources.
The classes are open to all children between the ages of 7 – 13, and they create an opportunity for children to interact with other children and the volunteers. An example class structure is below.
- 6:00 – 6:25 Welcome & snack
- 6:25 – 7:00 Character & Team-building activity
- 7:00 – 8:00 Clubs meet in small groups
All children ages 7-13 are welcome to attend our free enrichment clubs. Please fill out the Program Permission Slip as well as the Behavior Management Plan and bring them with you to the first class your child attends.

Meet the Volunteers
Kayla Darcey – Lead Mentor (6th-8th)
Kayla moved to Hoboken earlier this year and wanted to get involved with a volunteer opportunity. “TRUE Mentors stoo
Peter first learned about TRUE Mentors through our partnership with Jersey Cares. He signed up for our first Club in September of 2016 and has been volunteering with us ever since! “Since I joined TM I’ve really rekindled my passion to guide and mentor the youth. Growing up my mother had a daycare so I was always around kids and I saw the efforts that were made to guide them into becoming responsible and morally grounded young adult. Her love for kids rubbed off on me so to speak.” Peter is an incredible asset to the Enrichment Club team. He has a wonderful rapport with our mentees and always has a smile on his face. In just 5 short months, Peter has build TRUE relationships with our mentees that will have an impact for years to come.
