If you're over 25 and interested in empowering others and create a safer community, the Portland Partners Re-entry Initiative program is urgently seeking mentors like you.
SE Works and Volunteers of America Oregon work in partnership with other agencies to assist around 200 men and women annually in finding work, education, and support services.
To become a mentor, you'll first attend a six-hour training program in which you'll gain an understanding about the issues that program participants might face. Once in your role as mentor, you'll be a positive influence and offer a listening ear, support, and encouragement. Mentors may also help participants build a variety of simple life skills such as budgeting, grocery shopping, using public transportation, preparing for a job interview, parenting skills, and so forth.
