Mentorship

Youth

What is a mentorship program?

We partnered with FORGE Youth Mentor Program to bring Maui a community program for youth in foster care to connect with mentors in a safe and fun environment. Mentors meet with their mentees for at least 1 hour a week to do life together by encouraging, teaching and  sharing in fun activities like sports, crafts and other guardian approved outings.

A 1 year minimum commitment to the program is an important foundation for building trusting relationships in this program.  

How does it work?

Mentors and mentees are matched based on what they have in common, their strengths, personality and the youth's needs and mentor's experience. Every one can benefit from having a mentor, who is simply a person that is older than us, committed to helping us grow, learn and be encouraged.

All mentors complete mentor training courses, background checks, reference checks and interviews before being approved for this program.

Want to learn more about your youth joining this program? Just submit your application below and we will match them with a mentor!

Every mentor in our program is dedicated to building meaningful relationships with our youth mentees. Their training, experience and personalities have qualified them to have the honor to encourage and share life every week with their mentee!

 

Our program includes training with Forge Youth Mentorship and every mentor has a coach to support and guide them on their mentoring journey!
