New Volunteer Training: Rogue Valley Mentoring
January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree for Volunteers
Volunteers with Rogue Valley Mentoring (RVM) have the opportunity to support youth via a 1:1 Mentoring Match. We offer a $50 monthly stipend to volunteers in an active 1:1 Match, or Circle / Program, monthly support via Zoom meeting with our staff and other volunteers, and free, quarterly, in-person trainings with all our volunteers.
We are always receiving new applications from youth hoping for mentors. We serve any youth in Jackson County between the ages of 9 and 24 years; most of our mentees are in middle- or high- school. The volunteer schedule is flexible for 1:1 Matches, and agreed upon by volunteer mentors and their mentee’s family: you can make a big impact in just 6-10 hours per month!
The volunteer mentor approval process includes the Mentoring Essentials Training, a Background Check including Fingerprints, an Interview with RVM staff, and RVM staff checking 3 References you provide on the Mentor Application. This process is free to you, and fingerprints can be rolled at several retail locations around the Rogue Valley.
Our next Mentoring Essentials Training will be January 19th from 6p-9p, and January 20th from 9a-5p. You must attend both days of training to complete it.
