Hope for Tomorrow Frequently Asked Questions
We rarely know ahead of time if the mentee will be absent. You will play a different role during the session or work with other mentees. Your chapter lead will provide direction.
Each month one or more Mentors plan and implement the session activities. Your chapter leader will contact you if he/she wants you to facilitate a monthly meeting. Hope for Tomorrow provides the curriculum for each topic, which includes a purpose, expected outcomes, and life skills to be reinforced by the session’s information and activities. The Hope for Tomorrow website has resources with ideas and activities to assist you in presenting the session topic.
First, fill out the Mentor Application. You will be asked if you have a preference for mentoring at a specific middle school or chapter. Based on your response, you will be matched with a chapter lead who will interview you and answer any questions you may have. Once you are asked to join, you will fill out a mentor application that contains basic personal information and you will be asked to submit to a background check as required by the school. After passing the background check, the chapter lead will contact you with logistics regarding the annual mentor kick-off/orientation. During the kick-off you will receive additional information about the program and what to expect.
