Provo Youth Mentoring
What is Provo Youth Mentoring?
Be a MENTOR for one hour a week! Mentor a student at their school one hour a week and help them with academic/life skills, goal setting, language acquisition, and more!
How do I get involved?
To get started with the off-campus program, please attend a training meeting. You can schedule a training by emailing or texting/calling Cora Barrett:
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone #: (801) 362-3029
There is a great need for male, Spanish-speaking mentors!
Mentors are expected to attend one training meeting followed by volunteering 1 hour per week throughout the semester.
Please complete this mandatory 25 minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with the children.
This program may require a background check from the community service provider.
For most of my time at BYU, Fridays have been my favorite day every week--not because of fewer classes, but because I can have fun with the student I mentor and feel like I am making an impact in someone's life. I love how convenient the program makes it to make meaningful service a part of my life, which is so difficult but makes such a difference during the busy semester. It is an incredible feeling to know that your example and involvement in a child's life has a chance to alter their life course for the better. Beyond that, though, I think I end up benefiting even more than my student because of the friendship and happiness they share with me.
