Community-Based Mentor Program

12-month commitment 

Mentors meet one-on-one with their mentees for 1 to 2 hours each week.Whether it’s throwing a ball, baking cookies, or playing board games at a local coffee shop, the focus is always on the friendship. Children in this program range from ages 5-17. Although we request a minimum of a 12 month commitment, many of our volunteers have continued in their friendships for much longer.


Lunch-Time Mentor Program

9-month commitment 

Mentors commit to meet during lunch-time for a full school-year (9 months) with their young friends on school grounds at Ellensburg and Cle Elum/Roslyn Schools. Children range from kindergarten to high school (although most students are Elementary age) and enjoy spending time with their adult friends engaging in diverse activities, including reading, board games, sports, tag, and art projects.
