Become a Mentor
Mentoring changes lives. It can change yours. You can make a difference...simply by offering extra support, encouragement and guidance.
Apply to Become a Mentor
Whether you enjoy rough and tumble sports, a dignified game of golf or sharing a book with an 8 year old -- mentoring offers you the opportunity to interact with a young person with similar interests. Every year, youth from our region are relegated to waiting lists because of the lack of willing adult mentors. Won't you join us signing on to be a mentor today?
To apply to become a mentor with a local program, fill out our mentor application or call us at 412-281-2535 for more information.
Become a Promise Coach
The Promise Coaches Campaign takes advantage of natural mentoring relationships by educating and training adults to coach the youth in their lives to reach graduation. Becoming a Promise Coach is easy – just attend a 90 minute training and pledge to use your new knowledge to help youth graduate.
In everyday life, adults can find themselves fulfilling the role of a mentor. These naturally occurring relationships have many of the same benefits to youth that formal mentoring relationships have!
Adults who find themselves in this role may want additional information or knowledge to better support their mentees. For this reason, TMP trainings for mentors are open to community members who are not currently participating in formal mentoring programs. Register for mentor training or read through our mentor resources on your own to learn more.
TMP also has an Everyday Mentoring training for organizations that would like their staff to become more mentor-like in their interactions with youth. This training is highly adaptable depending on the needs of the organization and available on-site. To learn more about this opportunity, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
