The benefits to young adults are both immediate and long term. They include:
● Enhanced self-esteem and self-confidence
● Stronger relationships with others
● Improved interpersonal skills
● Be at least 25 years of age
● Successfully pass an extensive screening and background check
● Successfully complete 9 hours of classroom training provided by Unlimited Potential
● Make a minimum 12 month commitment to a mentee with an average of 10 hours per month
UP recruits and trains mentors to come alongside our young adults and help them navigate the transition into adulthood. Many times our participants that age out of foster care are left to fend for themselves with very limited life skills or resources. This is where the vital role of our mentors come into play and help our young adults build confidence and self reliance. Our participants come from many difficult circumstances such as homelessness, group homes, or treatment centers and really need guidance and support from a mature, trusted adult that they can rely on. If this is something that you are interested in please fill out the volunteer application.Volunteer Application
