About This Program

Target Population: Youth ages 14 to 21 years involved in the child welfare system

Program Overview

The One-on-One Mentoring Program follows a traditional one-to-one model of mentoring where one adult is paired with one young person. The program is intended to provide adolescents with a volunteer mentor who will help build strong relationships, set and maintain life goals, and be a positive role model. The One-on-One Mentoring Program is contracted by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) to recruit, screen and train prospective mentors in the northeast region of Connecticut. This program aims to provide an important relationship to youth ages 14 to 21 years who are committed to DCF. The program takes great care in matching similar mentor/mentee interests, and it offers training, activities and ongoing support of mentors to help them form nurturing and supportive relationships with their mentees.

The program serves: Male and female youth aged 14 to 21 years old who have been referred by DCF. These youth reside in foster homes, group homes, Community Housing Assistance programs, and/or residential settings.
