1-2-1 Mentoring

1-2-1 Mentoring  seeks to make life better for kids through the power of meaningful relationships.

Give of your time…

1-2-1 Mentoring is a volunteer program that strategically matches adult mentors with youth between the ages of 6 and 18, many of whom reside in single parent households. Matches are made through a careful screening process that assesses commonalities and compatibility of both the adult and child, to ensure that the relationship has a foundation to grow.  The purpose of the program is to provide children in need of a supportive relationship with both a mentor and a friend.  Volunteers make a commitment of at least one year, for 6-12 hours each month, with the support of 1-2-1 staff.  If you are interested in becoming a mentor, call 724-654-5507.

Calling all high school mentors…

There are also mentoring opportunities for high school students looking to make a difference in the life of a child.  High school mentors must be at least 15 years old, meet with staff for a screening process, and must be able to commit to meeting in a group setting once per week during the school year.

Give of your treasury…

We’re always looking for mentors, but if you can’t give of your time, donations are welcome.  1-2-1 Mentoring does not receive any state or federal funding- we are only able to provide these mentoring opportunities because of the generosity of community donors.
