Accountability mentoring is a strength-based program designed to help at-risk youth identify their strengths, set goals and identify the steps they need to take to work toward their goals. Mentors hold the youth accountable for their choices and work with them to develop empathy and accountability. The only requirement for participation in this program is that youth are willing to work toward positive change. Mentors address the issues that resulted in their referral but are also able to assist them in dealing with life issues that are contributing to their poor choices.
Mentors meet with kids at school during study hall. When that is not possible, mentors meet with kids at other public venues including the library, Boys & Girls Club, parks, etc. Mentors do not meet with kids at their home nor do they provide transportation.
It is recommended that potential mentees attend an accountability workshop before being matched with an accountability mentor.
There is no cost to participate in the program.
