MENTOR Vermont envisions a future in which every young person in Vermont has the supportive mentoring relationships they need to grow and thrive. In order to achieve this goal, we have collaborated with our funding partners to create the Vermont Mentoring Grants. With funding support from the A.D. Henderson Foundation and the Vermont Department for Children and Families, MENTOR Vermont strives to support, expand, and enhance the quality of existing mentoring programs, while also to helping to establish new youth-adult mentoring programs. We support this critical work by making grants and providing technical assistance, with the ultimate goal of sustainably increasing the quality and quantity of mentoring matches statewide. -Mentor Vermont
Mentoring matches once again had the opportunity to pick apples at the orchard during prime harvest time. Apple picking is an activity that can be enjoyed at any age and we are thrilled that some of our long-term mentoring pairs are still enjoying this autumnal activity.

New Circle Mentoring is one of the initiatives of Safer Society Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to provide services and resources for preventive and restorative responses to sexual and social violence. The goal of the mentoring program is to support mentees academically, psychologically, and emotionally so that they can overcome the obstacles on their paths to healthy adulthood. Mentors help mentees build social connections and support their learning and extracurricular activities, all of which encourage resilience and emotional competence in our mentees.
It’s a New Year for New Circle Mentoring and there is so much to look forward to!
