Site-based matches spend time together at the youth's school or an alternate designated location. School-based matches are not limited to the classroom. Of course, some youth do talk with their mentors about class, or do homework, or read together, but it's perfectly fine to shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground.
You won't have to worry about driving too far to meet with your youth. We'll match you with a youth at a school near your workplace.
This program is built for volunteer mentors who are able to briefly get away during their lunch hour throughout the school year. On average, site-based matches meet once a week for 30-45 minutes. Matches do not meet during the summer or school breaks.
BE THAT SOMEONE FOR THEM TODAY SO THEY KNOW WHO THEY CAN BECOME TOMORROW.
