Our Work

Mentor International supports our national and regional members in implementing programs in three core areas:

Individual Mentoring

A voluntary 1-to-1 mentorship between an adult and a young person that focuses on empowering, inspiring, and motivating the young person.

Career Mentoring 

Working in cooperation with corporate partners, we offer programs that provide real-life inspiration and experiences to students in order to inform their futures.

Parenting & Life Skills

Our members offer courses and seminars for parents that are designed to provide skills and techniques to enhance their communication and relationship with their children. They also run evidence-based projects focused on drug prevention for youth.
