We are committed to providing an environment which fosters belonging, independence, generosity and mastery among mentors, youth, and families. The four essential elements of positive youth development.
Mentors are a major part of their mentee's life. They provide stability and a caring relationship for their mentees. They provide their kids with something to be excited about and someone who is always looking out for their well being.
- Meet four times each month with their mentor (one activity each month is sponsored by 4-H)
- Attend monthly 4-H sponsored Mentor/Mentee (M&M) activities
- Attend monthly Family Night Out programs together with their family

To become a mentor, you will need to be at least 18 years of age and have a vehicle.
You will need to be formally interviewed at a time which fits your schedule. You will
be required to complete a background check (simply for the safety of the youth) and
attend some training prior to being matched with a child. Once the required paperwork
has been completed, the process of matching you with a child will begin.
- Be a mentor to a child (ages 9 - 15) in Utah County
