1-to-1 Mentoring

Youth ages 8-17 living in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties meet with an adult mentor once a week for a 6 month or 1 year period.  Mentors provide support, encouragement, and friendship and help their mentee learn important life skills.  Together mentors and mentees participate in workshops, activities, and fun adventures, exposing mentees to new experiences and opportunities.

Group Mentoring in Redwood City CA

Group Mentoring 

Students meet in small groups with mentors and staff during the transition between middle school and high school.  Once a week during non-core classes, they share fun activities focused on relationship building, problem solving, navigating education and more. Groups attend frequent field trips to local colleges, companies and other activities around the Bay Area.

Mentoring Institute

Friends for Youth’s Mentoring Institute began in 1998 in response to the growing number of mentoring programs and youth serving organizations across the nation seeking support in establishing Best Practices programming. Through the Mentoring Institute we provide technical assistance and trainings.
