Are you ready to make a difference in someone’s life? T.E.A.M. (Together Engaging Adolescents through Mentoring), a program of Catholic Charities Labouré Center, matches youth, ages 8 - 16, with caring, adult mentors. The first matches were made in April 1999, and since then nearly 300 matches have been made.
Once matched the pair meets once a week for two hours or more. The meetings are set on a week to week basis, depending on the availability of the youth and the mentor. Group activities take place monthly and program staff checks in regularly to provide support. Mentors attend regular meetings for additional training and support throughout the year.
Our mission statement: To enhance the resiliency of youth by increasing their self-esteem, strengthening their school-attachment, and fostering their ability to make positive life choices.
Who is a mentor?
- Someone 22 years old or older
- A caring friend
- A listener
- A role model
- Someone excited to spend time with an awesome youth!
- Willing to commit 2 hours a week, every week, for at least one year!
- Someone like you!
Come by the Labouré Center for an informal Info Night with T.E.A.M. staff to learn more about becoming a mentor (or a mentee!).
We are located at the corner of West Broadway and D. Street, across from Burger King.
