Our mentoring program recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to become mentors to both adult and juvenile Drug and Family Treatment Court participants. We wish to ensure that all participants have the opportunity to benefit from a relationship with a mentor who provides pro-social modeling and encourages emotional and social growth. The goal is to help our participants become sober, stay in recovery and become healthy, engaged citizens.
In our Mentoring Program for Drug and Family Treatment Courts, the mentor's purpose is to be an ally and support to his/her mentee. Mentors help our clients through life transitions and substance abuse recovery by listening, problem-solving, providing help in setting goals, and generally being someone who is supportive. Mentors also sometimes help out with practical areas of life, such as making and getting to appointments and helping the mentee find and connect to resources, such as job seeking or educational information. Mentors are asked to spend a few hours per month with their mentees for the period of time in which the mentee is involved with the court (usually 18 months to 3 years).
