ForeverU offers a social-emotional development program experience to 7-12 grade students that helps them become more mindful, self-aware, resilient, and emotionally intelligent.

Through the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've been rebuilding our program model to meet the needs of the students and families. The exciting new program model we've created is set to launch in early March. Please join our program waitlist to be the first to know about program updates, registration dates, and more.

Covid-19 Update

No matter where our students come from, we help them elevate their potential at school, at home, and in life.

Whether a student is battling depression, experiencing bullying at school, navigating a difficult home life, trying to manage their anxiety, or something in between, we give them the tools to show the world what they're made of.

|Become a Mentor

Mentors have the responsibility of supporting students during their ForeverU experience. The intention of integrating mentors into our program is to provide young adults with the opportunity to "be the person they needed when they were younger". Mentors also help us ensure that the students we serve through our programs feel encouraged, valued, and supported during their time in ForeverU.

 

ForeverU mentors are assigned no more than (5) students and have the responsibility of leading them through our self-discovery curriculum on the first and third week of each month. All materials used to facilitate these monthly online meetings can be downloaded directly from our website.​

After an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by our Program Committee which usually takes 2-3 weeks. If you meet our qualifications as a mentor, we will contact you about scheduling an online interview via Zoom.

 

Following this interview, you will undergo a background check and screening process, online mentor orientation, and complete our online training program in partnership with Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital.
