Mentor A Neighbor - Coming in 2021

Our certified mentors engage neighbors in need through in-person mentoring. Together, we uplift individuals and build a stronger community. 

Mentoring Village, through the power of mentoring, helps adults reach their goals. These person-to-person mentoring relationships improve lives by developing soft skills, building connections, and empowering our neighbors to achieve success. We've developed seven pathways based on common challenges faced by individuals in our community:

 

1. Career Development

 

Whether you are considering starting a business or need help advancing in your career, a mentor can advise and support you in your endeavors. 

 

2. Homelessness Prevention

 

We want to help you address the challenges in your life. Our mentors are equipped to help you seek employment, locate resources, obtain necessary skills, and learn financial literacy. 

 

3. Overcoming Addiction

 

Are you overcoming addiction? A mentor can help you address daily obstacles and provide positive reinforcement when you need it most. 

 

4. Managing Depression & Anxiety

 

Do you struggle with depression or anxiety? Some of our mentors also struggle to maintain their mental health. Exchange experiences and coping techniques. 

 

5. Moving Forward After Divorce

 

Make peace and redefine your life with the help of a trusted mentor. A mentor can help you identify your strengths, talents, and ambitions. 

 

6. Successful Re-Entry

 

Men and women behind bars are also sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers. If you're looking for someone to hold you accountable and advise you moving forward with your life, a mentor may be for you. 

 

7. Youth in Transition 

 

Have you recently aged out of foster care? A mentor can help you navigate adulthood and define personal success.
