Ignite Me Mentoring

Youth Revive is a Christ centered non-profit organization. Our mentoring program has five precepts: empowerment, choice, identity, community, and positive values.

These precepts are the ethical cornerstones on which our program was built. These are the qualities we wish to see not only in our mentors, but embodied in our students as positive citizens and soon to be professionals. 

Become a Mentor

A Youth Revive mentor is expected to accompany the mentee to a total of 8 Youth Revive seminars and workshops. A mentor will be expected to check in on the mentee weekly, either by phone call or text.They will also be expected to have 1 in-person meeting with the mentee per month. The mentor is to be someone who the mentee can look up to as an individual and consult for professional advice.

We request that all potential mentors commit to a minimum of two years of mentoring, be at least 21 years of age or older, and have no violent or drug and alcohol charges for a minimum of three years.

Mentoring matters

“Young people who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor.”
