Mentors are men and women at least 21 years of age, willing to commit for at least 6 months duration, for 4 to 6 hours per month. Mentors must complete an application process that includes a criminal background check, references and an interview before taking the eight hours of training. When the process is completed, the program coordinator matches mentors with the mentees, and offers introductions, coordination and ongoing supervision. Mentors who complete training and agree to the code of conduct are covered for liability. Materials are provided. The mentor and mentee meet at least twice a month in public settings such as libraries, churches or other locations, at times mutually agreeable to both. Phone contact is encouraged, and mentors are given information regarding community resources.
