E-Mentoring

Volunteer to mentor Birmingham Youth within a virtual setting.

E-mentoring involves creating one-to-one relationships virtually through phone calls, video chat, and more

Youth in our communities are paired with volunteers seeking to mentor within a more modern, current platform.  Volunteers serve as mentors from their phones and computers at a minimum of 30 minutes each week.  E-mentoring is currently limited to virtual match meetings only.  This partnership allows volunteers with limited schedules the ability to give back while working with a busy schedule. 

Although it takes place virtually, the E-mentoring program isn’t limited to just chats on the phone. Match Support Specialist will help provide virtual activities for each match. Some examples include:

Cooking

Online dance classes

Teaching a new skill

Netflix watch parties

Homework help

At the end of the day, it's really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.

ROLE MODELS MAKE AN IMPACT

Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes.
