Utilizing a strong partnership with the Milton schools, Milton Mentors works to match 3rd – 8th graders in the community with reliable adult mentors. We have between 18-20 matches currently in the program.
Matched pairs meet at least 4 hours a month (or 1 hour per week) and spend time exploring the community while building a friendship. Matches commit to at least a year of meeting, but many mentoring relationships last for much longer! The MCYC provides events every other month to help mentors provide meaningful opportunities to explore with their mentees and to allow matched pairs to get to know other mentors and mentees in the program. Some of examples of these include pumpkin carving, cookie decorating, movie nights, and visits to ECHO in Burlington.
Mentoring continues to be one of the most successful methods of building a young person’s developmental assets. Through Milton Mentors!, the MCYC aims to increase young people’s connection to the community, create solid relationships with positive adult role models, and ultimately help young people become successful, healthy adults.Research shows young people with mentors are more likely to: • Stay in school
• Aspire to achieve better grades
• Go on to college
• Become more trusting & communicative
If you are 21 years of age or older, have 4 hours a month to give to a child, and are looking for a way to make a difference or give back, become a Milton Mentor today.
Mentees are waiting – apply to be a mentor today!
