Enroll a child


A mentee is someone who has a mentor.  It is a youth that enters into the mentoring program having strengths, abilities and assets of their own, but may not realize all that he/she has to offer. The focus of a mentoring relationship is to help youth gain self-esteem and self-confidence in order to bring out the youth’s strengths, abilities and assets through resources provided, experiences shared and mutual activities.

Who can be a mentee in the STARS program?

Mentors are not meant to replace parents, guardians, or teachers, or to play the role of disciplinarians or decision makers.  Rather, they become part of a team of caring adults to that young person.  Mentors can help encourage positive choices, promote high self-esteem, support academic achievement and introduce new ideas.
