Ready to make a difference?

We're looking for positive adult role models ready to mentor youth and young adults ages 13 to 23.

Mentors should live within the five-county Southwest Florida community: Lee, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Charlotte.

Remember - this is a commitment. Youth are counting on you. With your guidance, more youth can:

  • Develop positive relationships with adults
  • Engage in healthier behaviors
  • Become more responsible and accountable
  • Develop more empathy and compassion for others
  • See improvement in their family strengths

Learn more about the process and submit your application.
