JEVS Launches Gateway Mentorship Program

December 2, 2019

Mentorship at JEVS is expanding! We are currently launching the Gateway Mentorship program, which connects 18-24 year olds enrolled in JEVS youth programs with mentors.

JEVS Gateway Mentorship Program

JEVS Gateway mentoring connects young adults ages 18-24 with mentors who can help develop professional skills, and enhance socioemotional learning. This is motivated by the well-researched concept that having a relationship with a trusted adult is extremely beneficial in healing trauma and helping young people succeed.

Mentors and mentees will meet twice a month over a six month period to work on goal setting and relationship building, as well as a variety of other personal and professional skills. To become a mentor, click here.

Other Mentorship Opportunities at JEVS

Gateway Mentorship joins JEVS 3 Cups of Coffee, a short-term mentoring program 
that matches people who are job-ready 
with a volunteer mentor. They meet three times for one-hour conversations in a local coffee shop. Together, they create a customized plan that identifies career goals and job possibilities while building networking connections.

Be a Mentor!

We need mentors from many different fields and backgrounds for both mentorship programs. If you or your friends, family, or coworkers would make a great mentor for a young person, please contact usTo be a 3 Cups of Coffee mentor working with job-seeking individuals, visit the 3 Cups of Coffee website.
