Reclaim Your Future Program Mentor Commitment
Mentors are asked to make a commitment to serve as a mentor for one hour each week for one school year. Regardless of when the volunteer begins mentoring, a commitment must be made to mentor the assigned student during the remaining school year. The mentor will meet with the mentor one hour each week.
Volunteers should be at least 25 years of age to participate in the Reclaim Your Future Mentoring Project. However, volunteers less than 25 years of age that possess maturity and shareable life experiences will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Project Manager at 702-799-6560.
