JourneyUP Mentor Program

 

The JourneyUP Mentor Program (JUMP) assists youth to develop life skills, accomplish goals, and find resources to become independent by providing access to adult mentors and to basic services such as housing, employment, educational opportunities, medical and dental, and mental health services.

How it works...

Mentors are positive role models, advisors, and supporters for youth who were formerly in foster care or facing homelessness.  A mentor and youth (ages 14-24) are matched in a one-to-one friendship that they help choose. They socialize and spend time together each month, usually about 6-8 hours. Mentors can help youth develop life skills and accomplish goals with the support of The JUMP services and activities.
