Mentor

David & Margaret’s Mentoring Program is designed to match qualified volunteer mentors with our clients. Clients and residents at David & Margaret are matched with suitable and responsible adult mentors. We believe that the more frequent the contact between mentor and youth, and the better the quality of the mentor relationship, the more positive direct on the youth’s improvement.

 

We run a highly structured program including initial and ongoing training for mentors and supervision of the mentor matches. The mentoring match is relationship-based, and focuses on the development and growth of the relationship instead of focusing on academics or other activities.

 

The goals of our Mentoring Program are:

 
  • To improve upon the growth and development for youth by partnering youth with responsible adult mentors
  • To improve school attendance
  • To raise the level of self-efficacy, create positive values and to empower youth
  • To decrease socially, self-self destructive
  • To develop supportive networks
