The overall purpose of the Pueblo Mentoring Collaborative is to build on current resources and address gaps in mentoring by building a community-wide system for communication and engaging, supporting and sustaining quality mentoring for Pueblo youth, young adults and families.
READY TO BECOME A MENTOR?
What is Mentoring?
How does mentoring make a difference?
What are the requirements for becoming a mentor?
- Be at least 18 years old (some programs may require applicant to be at least 21 years old)
- Be committed to for a certain amount of hours of mentoring (programs vary on commitment)
- Commitment and consistency to the mentoring relationship(s)
- Applicants will be screened
- Special requirements may vary by program
Mentoring helps youth, young adults and families succeed in school, work and life. Mentoring relationships that last for more than a year show higher outcomes for youth.
Youth who have had mentors set higher educational goals and are more likely to attend college than youth without mentors.
95% of youth who had a formal mentoring relationship said their mentoring experience was “helpful” and 86% of youth with a mentor said they were interested in becoming a mentor.
Mentoring Program Directory
One of the primary goals of CMP is to provide a program directory that connects local mentoring efforts and share access to programs in the Pueblo area. Feel free to contact these programs on your own for more information.
