Information for Mentors
Volunteer Mentors are recruited from Kansas State University. Each Mentor has been screened through an application and interview. Volunteers are asked to provide support, encouragement and friendship to teens referred to the program. Each mentor will be assigned one or more students. Groups meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Mentors are asked to be available for the weekly meeting as well as to follow up at least once during the week with a phone call or visit, if the parent agrees. Mentors agree to participate a minimum of one semester, and are encouraged to volunteer for the school year.
To apply to be a mentor, fill out the Mentor Application, available in PDF format. You may also stop by UFM, 1121 Thurston St., Manhattan, to pick up an application.
