One on One Mentoring Project - Cerro Gordo County

 Are you interested in being a friend and role model to an area youth? We are looking for volunteers who are interested in spending time with youth in grades kindergarten-12th grade.  Mentoring Coordinators provide training, support, and plan group activities for mentors .  This program focuses on fun and relationship building.   Many pairs have built lasting relationships and have been together for multiple years!  

 There are two types of mentoring: 

o   Individual mentoring- One mentor and one youth are matched (same gender) may meet at school or outside of school.  A one year commitment is required.

o   Team mentoring- a perfect opportunity for friends, family members, or co-workers to volunteer together outside of school.  2-3 adults may be matched with 2-4 youth.  A one year commitment is required.


Are you interested in being a mentor or signing up your child to be involved?  Please see the tabs on the top left of this page.

If you have any questions or would like to visit directly with a local Mentoring Coordinator, please call (641) 421-2708 or email:
