The Ophelia Project recognizes mentoring as an important vehicle for inspiring youth to initiate positive change. Many youth feel disconnected from adults and their communities. Mentoring provides that important bridge - it lets youth know that someone cares, someone is invested in their personal success. Not only were the youth in our mentoring programs affected by this relationship, but many of our mentors discovered that they could become leaders, have self-confidence, and find a clarity and focus in discovering who they are as adults.
Adult Mentor Training Video and Study Guide: Meaningful Mentoring Matters is a comprehensive training program for any adult who wishes to become a mentor in an individual or group setting. The accompanying videos are available on our YouTube Channel Playlist.
Middle School Mentoring Curriculum: RAPS: Relationships are Pathways to Success is a group mentoring program for Middle School students to help them develop a positive self-identify, successful conflict resolution skills, and healthy, trusting relationships. Materials for recruiting mentors and trianing them are included with the 20 lesson curriculum. The Ophelia Project ran this as an afterschool program for 14 years with mentors from the colleges and universities in our community.
