Full-time MENTOR a Child in the Community with Children of Promise

at Community Corrections Improvement Association in Cedar Rapids, IA

The Community Corrections Improvement Association's Children of Promise Mentoring Program helps to empower children aged 5-18 in our community who have a parent involved in the correctional system to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The mentoring program recruits adult volunteers who can commit to supporting, guiding and being a positive role model to a child with a parent incarcerated or on probation/parole by meeting for four to six hours a month over a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the child, the mentor can help the child develop and reach positive academic, career and personal goals. Potential mentors are required to complete a variety of background checks, an interview/orientation and training. Once the initial process is finished, mentors will participate in a match meeting with staff, mentee and family of mentee. Mentors are required to communicate with staff regularly in regard to the status of the match and must report hours on a monthly basis. Ongoing match support is provided by phone, e-mail, monthly mentor meetings and ongoing relevant training.
