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
New Circle Mentoring is one of the initiatives of the Safer Society Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to provide services and resources for preventative and restorative responses to sexual and social violence. The mentoring program has the goal to support mentees academically, psychologically, and emotionally so 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 mentees.
