Become a Mentor
Interested becoming a mentor? Applications for our FriendCHIPS mentoring program are accepted year-round! Gain experience working with youth, make a positive, lasting impact on a young person, and have fun!
Mentor pairs meet for an hour once a week at a coordinated time that works for both the mentor and mentee. Meetings are currently taking place virtually.
Mentors form a personal connection with their mentee, act as a positive role model, listen to and help their mentee with issues they are facing, and engage in fun activities, such as games, cooking, arts and crafts, sports, storytelling, or conversation together.
After submitting an application, mentors will also need to pass a background check before being matched with a mentee. Once you have been matched, you will receive mentor training.
