At-Risk and Opportunity Youth
Investing in our County's future workforce
CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership
We are a coalition of Queen Anne County employees and volunteer mentors focused on the job placement and education of "opportunity youth" - an untapped source of talent that is in need of our help.
Reaching Out and Up to Young People
CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership exists to unite caring adult mentors and existing mentoring groups with at-risk youth, ages 13-18 years for whom the probability of successfully transitioning to adulthood and achieving economic self sufficiency is low
The CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership establishes enriching relationships between our greatest resources (mentors) and our greatest assets (mentees).
Mentors offer a team approach with opportunity youth ages 16-24. These youth are disconnected, not in school and not working. Our objectives may include:
Increased awareness and modeling of socially acceptable behaviors
Expanded goals for lifetime achievement
VOLUNTEERS are NEEDED as mentors
Make a difference for our youth who are in need of acheivement mentoring. Mentoring helps youth to make better decisions that affect their lives and empowers them to fulfill their dreams.
*Mentors must be 18 years or older.
The CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership is made possible through its partners with the following organizations:
Local Management Board
CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership Board
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Greather Chesapeake
