Matching Youth With Adult Mentors
MILL CITY MENTORS
About This Program
Mill City Mentors is a mentoring program of Community Teamwork that strives to provide positive, caring mentors to youth facing adversity and in need of additional support to increase confidence, self-esteem, and be empowered to create their best life. Our program focuses on youth ages 7 through 22. Our vision is to provide support to youth, their families, and mentors to collectively establish a positive and successful future for the youth of our community. By utilizing effective mentoring models that will best suit each individual youth, we will empower our youth to strive for the lives they want and have the structure and support to attain it.
Mill City Mentors is a program of Community Teamwork and is designed to assist youth from the Greater Lowell area, which includes the following towns: Ashby, Ayer, Billerica, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Dracut, Dunstable, Groton, Littleton, Lowell, Pelham, Pepperell, Shirley, Tewksbury, Townsend, Tyngsboro, and Westford.
Mill City Mentors does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, income, gender, sexual orientation, age, or physical limitations.
Mill City Mentors is on the forefront of understanding the needs of our at-risk population in the Greater Lowell area. Our agency is at the heart of all community action services in the Greater Lowell area. Due to that, we are in the best position to create and support mentoring opportunities that individually benefit the youth in our community through 1:1 mentoring as well as site based and group mentoring opportunities to strengthen our youth.
Who are Mill City Mentors? They are every day citizens who want to have fun and make a difference in the life of a child. To get involved as a volunteer mentor, Mill City Mentoring staff will work with you to make the process as easy as possible. New volunteers must be at least 21 years old, be able to make a one year time commitment to the program, and complete an intake which includes an application, interview, training and background check. To learn more about volunteering or receive an application, contact email@example.com or download the application here Mill City Mentors Volunteer Application.
To get a child enrolled for Mill City Mentors, the child must be between the ages of 7-22 and reside in one of the 17 communities. Anyone can make a referral to the program, but the parent/ guardian needs to be in agreement to the program if the youth is under 18, and the youth must want a mentor. Program staff must complete the enrollment process to determine youth suitability, which includes meeting with the parent and child. For a child application, please contact the listed staff members, Mill City Mentors Child Application.
