Mentors create special relationships with children and youth in our care. For some of our kids, a volunteer mentor is the only adult in their life who is not paid to be involved with them. One caring individual can have a very powerful and life-long impact on a young person.
There are a variety of ways to mentor at Hull Services:
Mentors volunteer their time with a child or youth one-on-one and develop a relationship by doing various activities together. Over time, the mentor can help the youth improve their self-confidence, academic skills, life skills, and expose the youth to new opportunities, interests and connections in the community.
Group mentors may share a talent like cooking, dancing, art, yoga, drumming, soccer or skating with a group of Hull youth. The possibilities are endless; creating that spark of interest and having fun with the kids is what’s important.
