Community-based Mentoring is the traditional mentoring relationship. It’s all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person doing things they enjoy — a few hours a couple times a month filled with shared interests and activities like:
The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Mentors meet their mentees on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their mentees after school. There’s almost no one so busy that they can’t find a way to fit in a few hours a month. In spending regular and consistent time together, kids not only gain exposure to new ideas, but gain confidence in themselves, respect for others and most importantly, learn that other people care about them.

MUSIC & MENTORS
MUSIC AND MENTORS is a mentoring program where volunteers work one-on-one with an elementary school (K-5) student helping to learn to read music, sing and play the guitar. You do not need to know how to play the guitar, but being able to read music is helpful. We meet for an hour a week on Friday afternoons at Chestatee Elementary.
