Mentoría

 Únase al programa de mentores del condado de Chaffee para apoyar a los jóvenes de nuestra comunidad. Facilite el propósito, la autoestima y el descubrimiento a través de relaciones de tutoría individuales con adultos positivos y confiables como usted.

Cultivando a los líderes del mañana

El impacto de una relación de mentoría para un joven es de gran alcance y promueve notablemente el liderazgo, el voluntariado y una mejor asistencia a la escuela, fomentando la probabilidad de convertirse en mentor.

Los mentores provienen de muchos orígenes y experiencias de vida y se sienten satisfechos al retribuir a sus comunidades al marcar una diferencia en la vida de otra persona.

Siguiendo el modelo de Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Chaffee County Mentors conecta a mentores adultos con jóvenes y sirve como modelos positivos, partidarios y defensores.

 

Honestamente, nos resulta difícil visualizar una búsqueda más noble. Ser mentor es una gran responsabilidad y, como era de esperar, esperamos que nuestros mentores tengan un interés genuino en los jóvenes, participen en las evaluaciones y entrenamientos previos al partido y se comprometan con el programa durante al menos un año.

Los mentores y sus aprendices tienen la oportunidad de participar en actividades grupales mensuales y otros beneficios estructurados en toda el área del condado de Chaffee. Además de mentores, siempre se necesitan voluntarios para apoyar las actividades del grupo.

Elegibilidad y detalles

Convertirse en mentor es una manera increíble de retribuir y ser la persona que necesitabas cuando eras más joven.

¡Te estamos buscando!

Para nosotros es de suma importancia lograr los mejores partidos posibles. Con esto en mente, es esencial para nosotros tener un grupo diverso de mentores que puedan combinarse con nuestro igualmente diverso grupo de jóvenes. Tú, el mentor adulto, tienes precisamente lo que buscamos y eso incluye tu personalidad, intereses e incluso tus peculiaridades.

Edad:21+

Elegibilidad: Cualquier residente del condado de Chaffee
