Join Our Mentoring Team

Students need mentors now more than ever. School closures and stay-at-home orders have had a tremendous impact on our teens, not only affecting their education, but their social and emotional development too. When students return to school in the fall, they'll need the support and guidance of dedicated and caring mentors who can help them navigate their new normal and work towards a bright future.

We are actively seeking virtual or in-person mentors for the 2020-21 schoolyear. More information is noted below. The deadline to apply is August 15, 2020. Learn more by contacting Cindy Kluz at or 586-381-5066.
