Our Mission
Mentor Me empowers youth to reach their highest potential through mentoring and advocacy. We envision a world where every child has a mentor.

Changing Lives – An Impact Story
What if you could change the course of a child’s life by just showing up for an hour a week? What if your own life felt fuller, richer, and more meaningful because of it? That’s exactly what happened for Lynn and Leslie when mentor Lynn Camhi watched her mentee Leslie Mejia graduate from the University of California Berkeley, a defining moment of their remarkable 14-year relationship.

About

 

Mentor Me is a registered 501c3 nonprofit that helps young people achieve their best in school and in life by providing mentoring and advocacy programs and services.

Serving youth ages 5-17 since the year 2000, Mentor Me currently has 275 active mentorships and nearly 90 youth on our wait list. Trained adult mentors spend at least an hour a week with their mentees in Mentor Centers located on our partner school campuses, as well as at the Mentor Me Cavanagh Recreation Center. Mentor Centers are rooms on school campuses that provide a safe environment to foster trusting relationships between mentors and mentees. Our School Site Coordinators lead the mentoring programs at each school, managing the centers, recruiting mentors, accepting student nominations from teachers and counselors, meeting with parents and mentors, making mentor matches, and supervising mentorships.

Utilizing our Mentoring for Success Model, we strive for a world where every child feels safe to CONNECT with others and the world around them, feels empowered to GROW into their highest potential, and feels moved to CONTRIBUTE their talents to build a more positive world.
