Become a SMILES mentor!

SMILES Logo

Become a SMILES mentor! The program only needs 20 more mentors for this year's mentoring program. 

Why should I be a mentor?
Simply put, because you CAN make a difference in the life of a child, as well as your own. Consider the many benefits that mentoring offers: enhanced academic success, improved workforce readiness, reduction in juvenile crime, increased self-esteem, awareness of new opportunities and career paths and a strengthened community. 

What is the time commitment?
