CommUnity Mentoring Partnership is focused on supporting "Opportunity Youth" who are 16-24 years old who are out of work and not in school. We form teams of mentors to address and help with soft skills, education and employment needs . We also support "At Risk" youth, ages 13-18, who would benefit from an adult role model to encourage and support them. As well as to build sustainable life skills that will improve the liklihood of success.
“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you." - Bob Proctor
