T.R.U.E Mentor Program

The Family Resource Center’s T.R.U.E Mentor Program is seeking male volunteer mentors for our exciting new initiative based at our host site and in the community.

The Teach ONE. Reach ONE. UPLIFT ONE. EMPOWER ONE Mentor Program provides academic and social support for boys and young men ages 6 to 18 by helping our mentees increase their motivation and confidence, set and achieve new goals, give direction to their academic and future career choices while expanding their network, enabling them to unlock their potential and gain leadership roles.

T.R.U.E serves as the foundation for our boys and young men to build their futures through healthy positive relationships. Mentors will meet once a month for 4-6 hours with a mentee for a minimum of one year.  As an agency, we are dedicated to providing this opportunity to every boy in need. Join us and make a difference with this exciting new program!
