Mentor Virginia Open House

September 27th, 2022 at 6:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Tuesday, September 28, MENTOR Virginia is teaming up with 11 different mentoring programs in Central Virginia to virtually host a “Back to School Mentor Open House” this fall!

Register for the open house here. 

With a new school year starting, it’s a great time to mentor youth at a school near you! Having a mentor can make a huge difference for a young person, including helping them achieve more in their academics and feel a sense of belonging in their school.

WHO: The open house is an opportunity for adults 18+ to learn more about becoming a mentor to a young person at a school near them. Our goal is to help match volunteer mentors with the more than 500 youth who are currently on waiting lists this school year.

WHEN: The Back to School Mentor Open House will be held virtually on September 27, 2022 starting at 6 pm. Participants are recommend to join at 6 pm, but can join anytime between 6-8 pm.

WHERE: Virtually on Zoom (sign up to receive the Zoom link)

COST: Free

Interested community members will have the opportunity to learn more about each of the 11 mentoring programs at the event, and have the chance to sign up for the one that is best fit for their interests, geography, and schedules. Participants will learn about opportunities to mentor youth in one-to-one as well as group settings, with options for in-person and virtual mentoring.
