The Community Based Mentoring (CBM) program serves youth, ages six to 17 who benefit from having another trusted adult in their life. Youth are referred to the program by community agencies and individuals such as school counselors, Department of Human Services, Integrated Community, and others. Each youth mentee is carefully matched with an adult volunteer mentor that is recruited, screened, trained, and supervised by a PRC Case Manager. Each Mentor makes a commitment to spend one to three hours a week for a minimum of 12 months with his or her Mentee.
The Mentor serves as a friend, advocate, and role model to the Mentee. PRC provides ongoing support and training to Mentors as well as monthly group recreational and life skill activities for partnerships to participate in. Additionally, Mentees waiting to be matched receive services through our Nexus waitlist program, where case managers take just these youth on group recreational activities.
