The Orangewood Foundation Mentoring Service provides mentors to help make a difference in the lives of our youth. Youth will be matched with a supportive, trusted adult based on shared interests, hobbies, career goals, life goals, and preferences. Mentors provide one-on-one support and guidance to youth transitioning into adulthood. If you would like to become a mentor and are over 24, click here.
“I am so glad I chose to be part of mentoring. My mentor has brought so much comfort and joy into my life and I’m not sure if she’s aware of how much of a difference she’s made in my life. Every time we meet up to hangout and chill or do something fun, I feel so relaxed and at home. Whenever we part our ways from hanging out for the evening, I am always inspired to be a more calm, patient and caring person. I really wish I would have met her sooner she is definitely someone I needed when I was younger and I’m so happy I got to meet her now! I believe everything happens for a reason and I know she was meant to be in my life for a reason!!! She is the most kind, thoughtful, gentle and comforting person to be put into my life and I believe she deserves the world and more. Two years down forever more to go!”– Marlene N.
