Last updated on March 28, 2014

Y Mentors' site based mentoring program is a free program within the non-profit Rochester Area Family YMCA. Y Mentors site-based group mentoring serves youth in middle school within Olmsted County, in need of a positive adult role model and caring adult. We are specifically targeting the youth on our waiting list from our community based mentoring program to give them the opportunity to be connected with a positive adult role model. Each adult volunteer is matched with two youth, based on similar interests, until the end of August 2014 (min. 9hrs/month; first 3 Tuesdays/Month). Each adult volunteer is then also matched with another Mentor forming groups of two mentors & four youth.
To enhance the mentoring experience, Y Mentors provides on-going support, free monthly activities, YMCA resources, & community opportunities to foster long-term quality relationships. Our mentors offer their friendship & guidance to build a healthy mind, body & spirit in their Mentee. Our goal is to work with 25 volunteer Mentors and serve 50 youth in Olmsted County in this pilot program.
