The College Mentor Program pairs each Senior Fellow with a College Mentor, a personal coach for the college application process. Serving as a College Mentor is an intense commitment. BRYC Fellows need College Mentors who are committed, passionate, and willing to give generously of their time, talents, and energies.

Describe mentoring program/philosophy/expectations (no more than 250 words)

Destiny: The Rock of Escape is a faith-based, volunteer-supported, and creativity-driven mentoring organization that provides a set of opportunities to assist boys and young men up to age 24 to succeed.     

The aim of our work is to provide access to boys and young men who live in low-income neighborhoods to the knowledge, guidance, curriculums, programs, services, and activities they need to stop the downward spiral toward low-achievement, high school drop-out, risky sexual behaviors, unemployment, and early death or incarceration.

Our first point of contact with middle and high school boys and young men is not necessarily programmatic, but relational. Many of our boys and young men are relationally and spiritually bankrupt and need to go through a process of healing before they can start to participate in a program.

Participants have to gain an understanding that we care and will guide them with their best interests in mind. In other words, they choose their mentors and coaches.

Next, we take participants through a team building exercise where they select up to seven natural mentors-parents, teachers, relative—the most important people in their lives.

Then our staff and tutors work closely with the participants and their natural mentors to help them think about their lives advantageously and build a sense of significance.

Each participant is given assessments to understand their goals and skills. We use an early warning system and assessments to identify the boy’s most urgent school attendance, behavior, and core subject needs.

Describe mentoring program/philosophy/expectations (no more than 250 words)

Our vision is to make Gardere a safe place for everyone.  Mentoring is beneficial to both the mentee and the mentor as it exposes each to experiences they may not have had.  We are focused on functional mentoring: academic tutoring, athletics and teen development. Through practical application of academics, athletics and life skills the mentor provides a wealth of differentiated approaches to critical thinking.   We only expect seeds to be planted and nurtured in our youth. Mentors may not immediately see the blossoms, but must know that their seeds will eventually take root to provide the youth with a solid foundation on which to make critical life decisions.

Describe mentoring program/philosophy/expectations (no more than 250 words)

Youth Oasis is seeking adult volunteers to serve as mentors for youth (ages 16-21) in our Transitional Living Program. Many of the youth in our program are facing transition to adulthood without significant family support. It is important that they have access to stable, caring, and committed adults in their lives to provide a helping hand and warm heart when facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Mentor requirements include reliable form of transportation, pass a thorough background check, commit to several hours of face-to-face interaction with the youth per month, and be available for periodic phone contact and support. Youth Oasis is interested in partnering with individuals who are able to maintain unconditional positive regard for the youth they work with irrespective of race, gender, sexual orientation, or mental and behavioral health concerns. Youth Oasis will assist mentors in developing the skills necessary to work closely with our youth through training and will provide ongoing support to help both youth and mentors.

Research shows that having at least one stable and supportive adult who is consistently there for a youth as they are transitioning to adulthood greatly improves their ability to successfully navigate the world. The youth at our Transitional Living Program are at high risk for homelessness, unemployment, incarceration, substance abuse and sexual exploitation once adults; having just one person in their life that is there solely to support them can make a big difference in how a youth is able to respond to life stressors and their ultimate life trajectory.
