Request a Mentor

Interested in a mentor for a child in your life?
Read on.

Mentors are great, and they often play a significant role in a child’s journey. Incidentally, each mentee also has a special place in the mentor’s life.

While we wish everyone could have a mentor, our capacity and volunteers are limited. As such, we have a waiting list for mentees, and the wait can be a number of months. Moreover, completing the form below DOES NOT guarantee the child will receive a mentor. This is just the first step in the process.

Because our mentors are not usually experts in child and adolescent development, we CANNOT accept kids who are
  • involved with gang activity.
  • struggling with drugs or alcohol, requiring professional addictions counseling.
  • experiencing severe mental or behavioral health issues.

Additionally, each child must
  • be 10-17 years old.
  • be able to express why he/she wants a mentor.
  • be experiencing at least one risk factor (listed below on form).

A Formula for Transformation

Without Save our Youth in my life, I believe that I wouldn’t have been able to establish a clear view of where I want to be in the future.

Summer Academy helped me grow in my academics. This was also a fun experience for me. We made a lot of new memories and new friends.

I know that I don’t have to worry about my future now; I’ll be going in the right path thanks to SOY.

People like my mentor and the interns throughout summer academy have always been a support system for me in times when I need it.
