During this orientation those who attend will receive:
- An overview of Serve Our Youth Network and our different opportunities for mentoring (Amachi, Mentoring Children of Promise, Informal Mentoring at Polk County Youth Services and Second Chance Juvenile Mentoring Initiative).
- An overview of mentoring in general and its rewards and benefits.
- Basic requirements for mentors and our application, screening and selection process.
