We Make It Easy To Be A Mentor
Mentors prepare students to have successful careers and personal lives through the development of character values, goal setting, and strategic plans. Students find their mentoring experience invaluable. Mentoring provides students with an opportunity to learn about other professions, and to meet someone outside the classroom who can provide guidance, share personal and professional experiences, and serve as a role model. Winning Futures makes it easy because we provide mentors with a structured setting and topic-based activities to complete with their mentees.

Six Easy Steps to Becoming A Mentor
If you are motivated to help youth in your community and are willing to make the commitment, you can mentor! As a mentor, you can select which school you want to work with, and you will be asked to:
Step 1: Fill out an application
Step 2: Participate in an interview and background checks
Step 3: Fill out a Mentor Profile Sheet for your mentees
Step 4: Attend your Mentor Training
Step 5: Mentor at the school you select. You will work with three students on a scheduled weekday for one hour during school hours, and assist students to identify their character values, set goals, explore careers, build employability skills, and prepare for the future through fun activities.
