The Mentoring Project is a one-to-one mentoring program for youth in the Upper Valley. Mentors and mentees may explore career and education options, share a common interest or hobby, or focus on a particular project or goal like learning photography or running a marathon.

Who can participate?

Any student, in the Upper Valley, between the ages of 10 & 18, who wants a mentor can apply.

Who are the Mentors?

Mentors come from all sorts of backgrounds. S/he could be a farmer, doctor, veterinarian, forester, mother, chef or just a big-hearted person that would like to spend time with you.

What would be my commitment?

A mentee will spend at least five hours a month with his/her mentor during non-school hours and make contact with his/her mentor once a week. The minimum requirement is one year, but our over-arching goal is to see the relationship last through high school graduation.

What would I do with my mentor?

Almost anything you want. For example, just chatting, going for a hike, learning how to put a cast on a dog, prune a tree, play chess, etc.

The mentor can just be someone to talk to other than your friends or parents.

You can also use a mentor for advice and guidance on career/education options.

We’ll make every effort to match you with a mentor based on common interestsand similar personalities. This will give you a foundation for your mentorship.

Do the program organizers stay involved once a match is made?

Yes! We provide on-going support and monitoring. A mentoring coordinator will be available to deal with any questions or concerns that come up.
