Nonprofit Youth Services Business Plan

Organization Summary

Unite for Youth is a nonprofit agency providing mentoring programs for middle and high school youth in the Greater Claremont area.  The program will form partnerships with local school districts and the juvenile court system.

Youth are matched with a caring adult volunteer who is trained to focus on positive reinforcement, trust-building, and the achievement of goals, by engaging youth in one-on-one outing and group adventures in the community.  Mentors and youth agree to meet for between 10-15 hours per month for a full year. 

Ongoing training will continue with mentors on individual case management throughout the year.  In addition, Unite for Youth will have monthly mentor support meetings.
