The Mentoring Center exists to move all youth, whatever challenges they are facing, toward healthy, successful lives, by providing support, love, and opportunities for self-mastery.
The Mentoring Center is a nationally-recognized resource that creates and influences policy; builds the capacity of others serving youth through training; and develops and disseminates Transformative Mentoring™ practices and tools.
The vision of The Mentoring Center is rooted in the belief that all children will reach their full and unlimited potential by realizing their innate greatness.
The Mentoring Center supports youth to grow into healthy adults and become productive citizens with the ability to transform themselves and the communities where they live.
