Support For Those Who Need It Most
Here at D.A. Blodgett - St. John's we offer many different mentoring opportunities in the hopes that we can support those who need it most. As a mentor, you have the ability to make a lasting difference in the lives of children, young mothers and families.
The goal of the program is to engage, empower and equip youth with knowledge and skills to realize their unique potential and place in the world.
- The Mentoring Services Program provides trained adults to support identified youth and young adults through individual, group and community-based mentoring, focused on developing the assets they will need to be healthy, competent, confident and successful.
- We help youth and young adults, aged 10-25, who are considered at-risk; this includes those in residential treatment and foster care, as well as those who have experienced other adverse childhood events (ACEs) known to disrupt healthy development.
- Services are community-based and include one on one relationships in which a participant is matched with a specific mentor to work on and support social-emotional, academic, life skills or other identified issues, as well as group mentoring, in which a group of participants facing similar issues work together with one or two mentors over a period of time to develop skills and knowledge in a particular area such as healthy relationships, employment skills, academics, life skills or pro-social activities.
What Mentors Do
Mentors at DABSJ are volunteers who provide mentoring to promote healthy parenting to young moms and support to kids ages 10-25. Our mentors are adult volunteers who commit to supporting someone in need.
