About Us

Connecting youth to positive adult role models

Be A Mentor, Inc. has been positively interacting with at-risk and academically low performing youth since its founding in 1992 and continues to connect youth with challenging home lives with dedicated volunteer adults throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Be A Mentorís key initiatives include:

  1. 1) Providing direct mentoring services to at-risk youth (such as those in foster care; with incarcerated parents; susceptible to gang participation, drug/alcohol abuse or teen parenting; homeless/in transition or academically struggling);
  2. 2) Facilitating the process for adults to volunteer in schools and youth services organizations;
  3. 3) Leading a community coalition of school districts, youth service organizations, local companies and foundations to address the student drop out rate; and
  4. 4) Enabling corporate employees and community members to provide academic project and personal support to students in school via Email mentoring.

Be A Mentorís Mentoring Management System (MMS) is a full-service online program specifically designed to streamline and support the mentoring process, from mentor application to volunteer screening to match reporting and tracking. Its counterpart, the Volunteer Management System (VMS) provides any organization in which volunteer adults interact with children with a screening and project/activity management tool to ensure a successful undertaking. Both of these Systems are available for other agencies, community benefits organizations and schools.
