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 (Junior Partner) is carefully matched with an adult volunteer (Senior Partner) that is recruited, screened, trained, and supervised by a PRC Case Manager. Each Senior Partner makes a commitment to spend three hours a week for a minimum of 12 months with his or her Junior Partner. The Senior Partner serves as a friend, advocate, and role model to the Junior Partner. PRC provides ongoing support and training to Senior Partners as well as monthly group recreational and life skill activities for partnerships to participate in. Additionally, Junior Partners waiting to be matched receive services through our Nexus program, where case managers take just these youth on group recreational activities.
