Cherished Connections Mentoring Program

Ready? Set? Mentor!

Cherished Connections Mentoring Program strives to match current youth from Columbia County, ages 14-21, with a positive, caring adult in the community to coach them in life skills, be a “listening ear”, introduce them to new opportunities, empower them to make responsible decisions, and spend time pursuing activities of shared interest. 

Traditional Match

Mentors are asked for one-year commitment to their mentee. Mentors are asked to spend a minimum of two hours per week with their mentee and to meet with the mentor coordinator once a month for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Academic Success Match

Academic mentors in their Junior or Senior year from local colleges are matched with mentees that are Juniors and Seniors in high school. Academic mentors are asked to advise mentees regarding the college- bound process and what to expect academically and socially in college. 

Youth that age out of foster care are at a higher risk of homelessness, exposure to or involvement in the criminal justice system, and reliance on public assistance. Cherished Connections Mentoring Program recognizes that quality mentoring can play a role in assisting youth to succeed in areas of development like academic achievement, employment, and reducing youth violence, and so much more.
