RTS Youth Mentoring
The primary focus of the RTS Youth Mentoring program is to provide young men and women with purpose, motivation, and direction by encouraging them to choose alternative methods to their at-risk behaviors by learning that "We first make our habits, then our habits makes us." Our goal is to lower their chances of being involved in crime and build their character up into a person with high self-esteem.
About The Program
The RTS Youth Mentoring program seeks to provide youth with an adult figure who is capable of bringing a positive change in their lives by giving them advice and other duties as necessary.
What To Expect
Those who choose to become mentors can expect to go through a mentor training workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to train and help shape them into the nurturing and empowering force that our youth require. The program will last for 6 to 12 months. Potential mentors will learn how to teach life skills to mentees. They will also learn how to provide academic and social support for those who are struggling in either area. Mentors should expect to be partnered with youth between the ages of 9 and 17. You will also need to be available to attend certain events and keep in contact with your mentee during the week.
Requirements To Join
In order to become a mentor, you must meet the following conditions:
* Be 21 years of age
* Reside within the Hoke County area
* Willing to adhere to all policies and procedures of Maggie’s Outreach
* Commit to spending eight hours a month with the mentee
* Complete a thorough screening procedure.
What People Are Saying About Maggies
``Prior to Maggie's outreach youth Enrichment Center. I was confused. At the time I was going through some things which caused me to make bad choices. Before I got to the program I used the wrong friends as influences. The program has showed me how to be myself and choose better friends that want to see me succeed rather than to fail.``-Savana Austin
