- At least 25-years-old
- Reside within the NOAS service area
- Complete 12 hours of training
- Financially able to pay a $100 pre-screening fee
- Able to pass a background/driving record check and drug test
- Can volunteer at least six hours a month for one year
- Willing to dedicate patience, time and energy to a teen or young adult
Ready To Take The Next step
As a Mentor, you can make a difference and be a hero to a foster youth who needs a helping hand, a connection, and a champion for their well-being. Mentors come from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Most mentors may be matched as quickly as six weeks of submitting their application and have a mentor program coach to guide them!
You’ll find that it’s easier than ever to become a mentor.
