Mentoring

Every child and teen needs to know someone cares about them.

As a mentor, you don’t need special skills. You just need to be able to listen and offer your encouragement and friendship. Sharing your interests, good conversations, advice and laughter with a young person gives them more than your time. It gives them a future.

Mentoring at LSI

We know some amazing young people at LSI who would benefit from a caring connection to someone like you.

LSI’s Beloit and Bremwood Residential Treatment Centers in Ames and Waverly provide 24-7 mental health services to children ages 5 to 18. Many of these young people have faced past abuse or neglect. As they begin to heal and learn new skills to move forward positively in their lives, a caring mentor can help.

Research shows that young people who have a mentor have better outcomes in areas of school, mental health, problem behaviors and health.

Our mentoring program involves an application, background checks and an informal interview.
