Bergen Volunteer Center - Mentoring Youth

Who We Are

Mentoring Youth—a program of the Bergen Volunteer Center—is designed to provide one-on-one support to youth [between the ages of 5-21] throughout Bergen County.   




What We Do

The Mentoring Youth program recruits, trains and supervises volunteers to ensure they have the tools necessary to positively impact the lives of children.  Volunteers mentors provide friendship, guidance and support to youth confronted with social, emotional and/or behavioral challenges.  As trusted adults in the lives of youth, volunteers promote good decision-making skills, encourage self-advocacy and present opportunities to explore new experiences.
