Mentors

An hour a week – a lifetime of change.

Become a mentor.  It only takes an hour a week to be that one person who can change everything for a child.

  • A mentor is a friend who doesn’t judge.
  • A mentor is a person who listens and understands.
  • A mentor is a role model who teaches responsibility.
  • A mentor is someone to do things with.
  • A mentor is a person who helps a child find a spark and follow his or her dream.

The reward? Knowing you’ve helped a young person live up to his or her potential. More than 96% of mentors say they’d recommend becoming a mentor to a friend.

Northville Youth Assistance is looking for adults who can remember what it was like to have someone like this when they were a child, or what it was like to wish they did.

Volunteer mentors participate in a ten-hour training program, which takes place one evening a week for five weeks.  Then they are matched with a Northville child between the ages of five and 16 and asked to spend an hour or so a week with the child, becoming a trusted friend and having fun together.

Northville Youth Assistance is a shared service between the City of Northville and Northville Township, with support of the Northville Public Schools.  The purpose of this community-funded program is to improve the lives of Northville’s youth and their families through advocacy and program development.  The program provides a variety of  programs that center around building resiliency skills in the community’s youth to help prepare them for the challenges that face them.  In addition to mentoring, NYA provides free counseling for youth and families in the Northville community,  tutoring for elementary school children, homework help for middle school children, community service in lieu of suspension for middle school and high school students, youth empowerment classes and speakers on parenting issues. A separate component offers first time youthful offenders counseling, educational groups and community service as a diversion from the court system.
