Lyme-Old Lyme Mentoring Program

Mentor Today, Make a Difference Tomorrow

We are looking for adult mentors to work with elementary & middle school students starting Fall 2021

Do you have an hour to give each week to make a difference in the life of a young person?

We are looking for mentors for our Lyme-Old Lyme Mentor Program, which is a collaboration of the Lyme Old Lyme Schools and Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau. We seek to match adult and high school mentors with middle and elementary school mentees. Mentors meet with their mentees for one hour each week (during lunch or immediately after school). The program provides initial training for incoming mentors, and we offer regular check-ins and support to mentors. Every child can use another caring adult in their life. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact us!
