Serving Hoboken & Jersey City
TRUE Mentors, Inc one-to-one Mentoring Program is our flagship program! Youth development research has shown that programs that have the most impact on at-risk youth incorporate opportunities for said youth to develop at least one positive, adult relationship outside of their family unit. This allows youth to expand their horizons, have constant, unbiased support, and focus on their sense of self and needs outside of their home situation.
Goals of Program:
The establishment of rapport and ongoing, mutually beneficial relationships in which youth can practice and increase skills, confidence, adaptability, and problem-solving skills; expose them to diverse hobbies, activities, and interests; and experience ongoing advocacy and support.
No, as long as you are maintaining at least eight hours of contact with your mentor/mentee, then you do not have to participate in any TRUE Mentors activities or events. These are here to support matches by offering available, diverse things to do. Maintaining communication with staff is imperative if you are not participating in our other programs.
