NK Mentoring Program

The primary goal of the LINKS NK Mentoring Program is to positively influence young people's lives through mentoring. Mentors meet one-to-one with a student on school grounds during school hours.

Mentors are caring adults who are willing to give an hour per week of their time during the school year getting to know a student and becoming a friend and role model.

Mentoring relationships can improve a student's self-esteem, attitude toward school, ability to get along with teachers and peers, attendance and academic performance.

Individuals interested in becoming mentors complete an extensive screening process that includes an application, interview, reference checks and a national background check. Training is required and provided.
