Last updated on February 11, 2014

Wildcat Youth Mentors (WYM) are college students who provide trusting relationships, one-to-one, to at-risk middle or high school students. WYM has delivered life-changing friendships to thousands of youths over the past 10 years, encouraging them to achieve their full potential academically and morally.

Mentors can volunteer in a number of schools state-wide. In as little as one hour each week per semester, through friendship and listening, you can significantly change the outlook for a local student. Following a brief orientation and training, you will be paired with a youngster of promise whom you will meet weekly at his/her school.

Together, we match your interests with the needs and interests of your Mentee. With your leadership, you can choose how to build the skills that your Mentee needs to succeed. Our Mentors become “work-ready” and earn the references to prove it.

MENTOR A STUDENT AT: Barrington Middle School; The Birchtree Center; Dover Middle School; Great Bay Services; Henry Wilson Memorial; McClelland Elementary School; Northwood School; Oyster River Middle School; Rochester Middle School; Rochester Youth Safe Haven; Seacoast Family Promise; Seymour Osman Community Center;
And at schools in these towns: Berlin, Claremont, Concord, Hanover, Keene, Laconia, Lebanon, Littleton, Manchester, & Nashua
