That's awesome! This is your first step. Please view the Intro Training for New Mentors below. It will take just 10-15 minutes and will answer SO MANY of your questions! When you're done, fill out the application, and sign up for the next required trainings below.

Training Schedule

After the introductory training, there are 3 trainings to complete before you can be matched with a young person. We recommend doing them in order, especially if you're new to the child welfare world. You can join us online, however it is highly recommended that you attend in person.
