How is Center for Community Development Making a Difference?
Our mentoring program provides a caring adult friend to a young person. Although mentors all
fill any number of different roles, all mentors have the same goal in common: to help young people achieve their potential and discover their strengths.
A mentor's main purpose is to help a young person define individual goals and find ways to achieve them.
By exposing a youth to new experiences, a mentor encourages positive choices, promotes high self-esteem, supports academic achievement and introduces the young person to ideas.
A mentor may help a young person:
- Think through a problem at home or school
- Make Non-violent choices
- Set career goals and start taking steps to realize them
