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 (4) students and are responsible for leading weekly meetings ("meetups") that integrate peer support and self-discovery techniques using our provided leadership materials. After an application is submitted, we will review the application, contact the provided references, and complete a thorough background check. The background check we conduct includes a Department of Justice sex offender search, a national criminal search, a current county of residence search, and a terrorist watchlist search.

 

If we believe an applicant is a good fit for our program, they will be invited to schedule an interview with our Program Committee. If selected as a mentor, they must complete our certification program, facilitated and overseen by mental health professionals affiliated with our organization.

 

The certification program mentors must complete integrates training on our program policies and procedures, mental health first aid, crisis intervention, implicit bias, diversity and inclusion, addressing sensitive topics, and effectively serving as a role model for our students.
