About Impact A Life! Become a One-to-One mentor

Become a one-to-one mentor to a child, ages 6 - 15 years of age, most often from a single parent or guardian headed households. Through casual shared activities, a mentor provides caring adult support, opening up opportunities to help expand and shape a child's potential, helping them to navigate the developmental challenges of life by helping them make better choices. Mentors are needed to serve as community-based volunteers seeing a child 2 -3 times a month for a period of one year or site-based volunteers in partnership schools meeting with a child one a week during their lunch time for a full academic year. Mentors report that their time is richly rewarding as they invest in the future of the child they mentor.

Application Process

It starts with an inquiring conversation about your interest in working with a child. After, an application, enrollment interview, references, and background check are required before being accepted. An online, in person training and ongoing match support prepares and supports you in your mentoring service.
