Community Vision, Inc. is recruiting mentors for the Dream Builders Alliance Program, working with youth ages 16-21, who experience disabilities and are preparing to transition into adulthood.
You will be matched one on one with youth, based on shared interests. You will explore goals, participate in community activities and have fun together! This is a great opportunity to build professional references and gain experience working with youth with disabilities. This is a 6-month commitment for approximately 3-5 hours/week.
Mentors provide a fun and safe learning environment for young adult participants that build towards developing goals and vocational skills while exploring personal interests. Activities range from meeting in the community to discuss life dreams and goals, to practicing applicable skills. This could include riding public transit, building networking skills, attending college classes, or arranging informational interviews. Each activity is geared to the participant’s skills and interests.
- Mentors will meet with their young adult participant match for 3-5 hours a week in the community.
- All travel and activity expenses are reimbursed on a monthly basis.
- Dream Builders Alliance provides a $100 stipend for each mentor following active participation and completion of the cohort.
- Mentors are welcome to continue relationships with participants following cohort completion, as well as becoming a mentor for a future cohort participant.
