The Horton’s Kids Mentoring Program helps to empower Horton’s Kids participants in grades 7-12th to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The Mentoring Program uses adult volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor helps youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.
Horton’s Kids recruits for new Mentors twice a year, typically once at the start of the school year (August-September) and once at the beginning of the calendar year (January-February). All prospective Mentors are required to complete the Horton’s Kids Mentor Application.
Applicants who meet our selection criteria will be notified and asked to complete a Mentor Match Survey to help us make the strongest Mentor-Mentee match possible. All mentors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, show proof of vaccination, and complete a background check.
The Fall 2022 Mentor Application is now closed. Applications submitted after August 16th will be accepted on a rolling basis for the 2022-2023 school year. Apply here.
