Join the Mentoring Connector

What is the Mentoring Connector?

The Mentoring Connector is the only national database of mentoring programs. Each year, potential volunteers looking for mentoring opportunities do more than 80,000 searches in this system. This free service helps quality youth mentoring programs recruit more local volunteers while greatly increasing visibility for their organizations.

How Does the Mentoring Connector Work?

Anyone interested in becoming a mentor can search for mentoring opportunities by zip code, ages of youth served, and program type to find and contact programs that interest them. Families and other caring adults can also use the database to find programs for a young person. MENTOR Virginia uses this database to make referrals when we receive inquiries from volunteers, families, and school counselors. Our national partners at the NBA, the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, and others use the Mentoring Connector on their websites to recruit volunteer mentors.
