Norwalk Mentor Program at Human Services Council
The Norwalk Mentor Program coordinates a structured one-on-one relationship between a student and adult volunteer. This unique approach provides participants in grades K-12 with an adult who can meet them for approximately one hour per week during the school year and engage in academic and/or social activities conducive to the school setting. By sharing fun activities and exposing youth to new experiences, a mentor encourages positive choices, promotes high self-esteem, supports academic achievement and introduces the mentee to new ideas. Mentors act as friends and role models and spend each week having fun with their mentees - playing catch, reading a book, shooting some hoops, creating an arts and crafts project, or just talking.
