Become a Hope For Tomorrow Mentee

About Our Youth Mentoring Programs

How do you become a mentee?

Students are nominated by school staff to participate in Hope for Tomorrow. The eighth grade participants are recommended based on their potential for personal growth and academic achievement through the encouragement and guidance of another caring adult in their lives. Students participate in Hope for Tomorrow on a voluntary basis for one school year and with parent or guardian permission.

Why be a mentee?

Many successful people credit one or more mentors who made a big difference in helping them succeed. A mentor is someone who has a genuine interest in helping another person improve specific skills and develop as a person. The supportive, healthy relationships formed between mentors and mentees are both immediate and long-term and contribute to a host of benefits for everyone involved.
