Become A Mentor

What does it take?

  • A caring adult over the age of 18
  • Complete the online volunteer application
  • Pass a background check
  • Complete a one time New Mentor training
  • Commit to spending a minimum of 4 hours/month with your mentee for 1 year


Many youth aren’t aware of the many career opportunities available to them. The connection between what they learn sitting in a classroom and the real world seems non-existent. You can bridge that gap. 

Be a mentor and share your career expertise. Engage your mentee in setting and reaching their goals. And most importantly, be a friend and role model that opens a world of opportunities here in Central Iowa.

“I love that my daughter has such a great influence in her life. I feel comforted knowing that I can trust her mentor and she is sharing opportunities that she never knew were open to her.”
