Long Term Committment to the Student
As a mentor, you make a committment of at least one year to your student. CaLiCo Youth Services makes a ten year commitment to the students in our program. We primarily enroll students in middle school, and are committed to taking them through to a career.
One on One Tutoring
As a mentor, you are assigned one student, whom you meet with at least once a week. You help them with homework and/or help build their academic fundamentals.
Life and Career Mentoring
As a mentor, you are available to your assigned student for conversations or activities that the student may enjoy. From what to do over summer to something that may be bothering them, to reading or playing a game.
A Virtual Family
CaLiCo Youth Services will interact closely with the family of the student. We will ensure that parents and teachers are aware of a student's progress and challenges.
CaLiCo Youth Services brings together people who may never have otherwise met into one cohesive community, where members care (Ca-) for each other, listen (-Li-) to one another, and connect (-Co) each other to resources.
