| Become the person you needed as a teen.
Mentors have the responsibility of supporting and mentoring students through our program, Living Louder™. This rewarding volunteer role provides young adults with the opportunity to become the person they needed as a teenager. The primary job of a mentor is not to fix anyone, but to ensure that the students we serve at FOREVERU feel encouraged, valued, and supported throughout their journey of self-discovery.
Mentors are matched up with a trained instuctor and assigned a group of students enrolled in the Living Louder™ program. Mentors are then responsible for assisting the trained instructor at weekly discovery sessions that help students comprehend and apply a wide variety of practical life skills and mental tools for establishing a "storymap" for their ideal life path. Mentors serve as a students' guide for the entire program.
